For breaking up the boredom of long-lasting Zoom calls and video chats, a farm in the Silicon Valley offered a new way out. They are offering many different types of appearances for video chats. You can get cameo appearance for less than $100 from Sweet Farm’s goats, llamas and other animals. This project is named as Goat 2 Meeting.
According to Anna Sweet the cofounder of Sweet Farm,
“Zoom, the popular conferencing software, allows people to bring farm animals into their work happy hours and corporate conference calls.”
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, everyone has to obey the lockdown order. That is why people are working from home as a daily occurrence. Remote workers are shifting towards the video calls on Zoom, Google Hangouts, and other software to perform the daily activity. For bringing people together virtually, Goat 2 Meeting is the only groundbreaking project with its smart offers.
According to Anna Sweet,
“We received more than 300 requests after its launch in mid of the March. Sweet farm’s animals have already made appearances in meetings for Fortune 500 companies and tech startups.”
For a law firm, they offered “virtual happy hour” in which the lawyers took their kids for a virtual tour of the farm to meet animals in a video call.
Above all, for different sort of animal cameo, people can pay from $65 to $250. These animals include llamas, goats, pigs, cows, sheep and turkeys. Up to six call participants can have a virtual tour of the farm for 20 minutes in $65. You can have a virtual tour for a bigger meeting for 25 minutes in $250. Also, you can get a 10-minute animal appearance in $100.
Sweet Farm is partially funded farm by the people who come and visit this farm. But now because of coronavirus pandemic, it was not possible to run the farm. Anna, who also works in tech in Silicon Valley, founded Goat 2 Meeting a way to make up some lost revenue. It is a nonprofit animal saving and nature reserving farm, which connects people and they donate something for the food and maintenance of the farm.
They are also offering free virtual field trips to schools. Different schools in the UK and Brazil had the virtual field tour, and now they are arranging a virtual field trip for the homeless refuge in North Carolina. Sweet said,
“I think we’re all a little stressed with what’s going on — many of us have been sitting inside. We’re just hoping to bring some smiles to people’s faces while bringing them out to the farm at the same time.”
