Woodstock Animal Sanctuary.
Since I learned of the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary I have been dreaming of taking a field trip to visit all the lovely animals that were lucky enough to reside there. The owners take in animals that were victims to animal cruelty and provide them with an environment of love. Who can’t get behind that?
The weather today called for absolute fall perfection, and so my friend Sarah and I drove north 2+ hours to meet and tour the farm which houses over 200 animals including cows, pigs, goats, lambs, ducks, hens, roosters, geese, and turkeys. We were given a tour by one of the owners of the sanctuary, who called over all the animals (BY NAME!), shared some of the animals’ sad history, and shared some information about the torture involved in dairy farming and how to implement a vegan diet. I think for people who are not quite as informed as many of us, this may be a bit of a shock. The tour was really informative and so fun! Please enjoy some of the photos of all the lovely animals we got to meet today!
Afterwards we headed over to a vegan restaurant which had a pretty awesome menu, called Garden Cafe on the Green in Woodstock, and both enjoyed the sweet potato black bean burger. The rest of the afternoon was spent enjoying the perfect fall day and reveling in all things autumn!
How’d you spend this perfect fall weekend?
