A farm in Virginia is asking for people to volunteer to care for newborn goats that need to keep warm (KTRK)

Do you aspire to cuddle kids? Well, a Virginia farm is looking for you this season.

In Albemarle County, about 90 newborn baby goats are expected to be borne by mid-February. With that in mind, Caromont Farm is asking for people to become "goat snugglers" - no experience necessary.

Goat snugglers cuddle the babies and also bottle-feed them. The baby goats need to stay warm and be fed four times a day.

One farm worker told station WVIR volunteers would also get to learn something.

Isabella Zechini said, "This is kidding season, it's gonna be a really happy and really hectic time, we'd love to have people come and see that whole process and see where their food comes from."
