Picture this: You’re traveling in the Italian Alps. You stop by a local dairy farm. You pick up some delicious fresh cheese—made with milk from your very own cow. It could be your reality, thanks to Adopt a Cow, created by a group of Italian farmers. The program lets cheese lovers invest in livestock in return for both soft and aged cheeses. So much more useful than a panda! (Though they deserve your money, too.) To adopt a cow, simply visit this website, pick a bovine that holds your attention and donate about $67. Congratulations, you have an Italian cow. There is one major catch, though: The farmers don’t export the cheeses, so to reap the benefits of your adoption, you have to travel to the Sugana Valley in northern Italy and pay a visit to your cow’s alpine hut. Seems like a pretty great excuse to take a quick trip to Italy to us. If not, there must be someone on TaskRabbit willing to take up the cause.
