South Carolina goat farmer, animal rescuer, and Tik Toker, Goat Daddy’s Farm, shared a clever way to feed all the baby goats using Sprite bottles.

In a bucket ready to feed the babies, the video shows 13 Sprite bottles that have been emptied and refilled with goat’s milk. They have also all been equipped with bottle-top nipples for the baby goats to drink from.
The farmer brings the bottles to a genius handmade wooden bottle holder in the baby goat pen to place them in. The holder is built perfectly so that all the bottles can be held upside down and the nipples can poke through holes in the wood allowing the goats to drink below.
Once he starts placing the bottles in the holder the baby goats get excited and jump over each other trying to get a nipple. With the help of the farmer, each baby goat gets a nipple and happily wags its tail as it fills its belly. It might make your heart melt.
Owned and operated by Jason Southers and Josh Slade, the farm is located on 25 acres of forest just outside of Columbia, South Carolina.
The farm produces Grade A Goat Dairy, whey-fattened Non-GMO heritage pork, eggs, raw goat’s milk, goat cheese, ice cream, and local handmade art.
Goat Daddy’s Farm wrote on Facebook, “We are open to the public Saturday from 10am-3pm every month except December and January.”
They also said, if you’ve ever wanted a baby goat and are thinking about potentially getting one, there are a few things you should know first. Knowing these important things will make it to where when you take your baby goat home, you’re ready for a happy and healthy relationship. Goat Daddy’s Farm covers those things in the YouTube video below.
