You Can Pay To Have A Llama Or Goat Join Your Work Video Meeting

You Can Pay To Have A Llama Or Goat Join Your Work Video Meeting

Now that most of us are working from home because due to the coronavirus pandemic, surely we're used to having meetings online.

Depending on whether you use Zoom, Microsoft Teams or whatever other platform, it's usually pretty dry.

While you can add in a virtual background, that's about as fun as it gets.

But one farm in America has decided to make online meetings more fun by giving you the opportunity to have a goat or llama drop in on your call.

The Sweet Farm, an animal sanctuary in Silicon Valley, is giving people three options to have a bit of livestock added into your work call.

"Need a fresh face to brighten up your video conference meetings?" the website says. "Want a fun experience for an online Happy Hour? Looking for a virtual tour? The Sweet Farm Animal Ambassadors are here for you."

If you want a virtual tour of the farm, it'll set you back USD$65 for up to six people, for a 10 minute 'Corporate Meeting Cameo', you'll have to fork out $100 and for $250, you can get a 25 minute 'Corporate Meeting Virtual Tour'.

But it's not just goats or llamas that you can pay for.

Those keen on the idea can also request sheep, pigs, cows and turkeys.

Sweet Farm cofounder Anna Sweet told Business Insider she hopes the initiative can 'connect people to where their food comes from'.

"I think we're all a little stressed with what's going on, many of us have been sitting inside," Sweet said. "We're just hoping to bring some smiles to people's faces, while bringing them out to the farm at the same time."

The Sweet Farm has had to adapt, like many other small businesses around the world, after the coronavirus pandemic hit.

In order to replace the money that usually would be derived from in-person visits, the owners of the Sweet Farm thought it would be neat to invite people to join them online.

So, if you've been hankering for a bit more liveliness on your daily, weekly or monthly group work calls, it certainly wouldn't hurt to get a llama or goat involved.
