TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

People are finding creative ways to celebrate special occasions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

One local homestead says We're Open with a unique offer your loved ones will never forget.

The owners of Silly Goose Farmstead in Leon County began delivering goat-grams again in June.

People can purchase a goat-gram to surprise someone for a birthday, anniversary, or any other special occasion.

Silly Goose Farmstead will bring a baby goat to the recipient's front door for them to cuddle with along with a handwritten message.

"And so we start recording as soon as they open the door to catch their reaction," said Tracy Britton, the owner of Silly Goose Farmstead. "They read their card and then we hand them the goat and they get 15 minutes with the goat."

For safety precautions, the Britton family is wearing masks when they deliver the goat-grams and bathe their goats when they get home.
