California's Sweet Farm launched the Goat-2-Meeting service, which lets you invite a llama, goat, or other farm animal to a video conference. In this way, the farm is trying to compensate for losses caused by coronavirus.
Since the launch of the Goat-2-Meeting service in mid-March, the company has already received more than 300 requests for meetings. The cost of one video call ranges from 65 to 750 dollars, depending on the time and number of participants in a video conference.
The Sweet Farm has got several great options:
- 20-minute Virtual Private Tour is a $65 donation for up to 6 people. This tour will highlight a few of animal ambassadors and areas of the farm.
- 10-minute Corporate Meeting Cameo is a $100 donation for unlimited guests. You can send your meeting link, and they will call in to bring some smiles to your co-worker's faces!
- 25-minute Corporate Meeting Virtual Tour is a $250 donation for unlimited guests. You send your meeting link, and they'll call in to show you and your co-workers around the farm!
- 25-minute VIP Meeting Tour is a $750 donation for unlimited guests. Due to incredible demand, the farm opened some extra slots with the Executive Director to give a very special view of the farm.
The farm offers a wide range of farm animals. Goats, sheep, pigs, cows, turkeys, and llamas can participate in a discussion of your company's business processes or hang out with you at a virtual disco. Llamas have been the most popular animals so far.
Founder of the farm, Anna Sweet, works in Silicon Valley technology, and Sweet Farm has been registered as a shelter and nonprofit animal rescue organization. The farm is partially funded by visitors who stopped coming due to quarantine caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Also, now Sweet Farm offers free virtual tours for schools in the UK and Brazil.
