City Slickers; turn off that crackberry and get in touch with some real deal nature. Farm Sanctuary’s Country Hoe Down is happening at their upstate New York Shelter this August 1st & 2nd, and there are still time to get tix!   We love and support Farm Sanctuary for many reasons.   So rent a zipcar, grab a bff, and go – eat under the stars, mingle with progressive, cute, smart folks you are bound to crush out on, pet a zillion angelic rescued animals, and do your morning yoga while watching the piglets play.   For $100, can you really think of a better summer roadtrip?

This memorable weekend will feature:

  • A fabulous line-up of educational and inspirational presentations by leading figures in the animal protection movement, including vegan chef Alexandra Jamieson, Mercy For Animals’ Freeman Wicklund, Brighter Green’s Mia MacDonald, author Amy Hatkoff, Farm Sanctuary Co-founder and President Gene Baur, and more.
  • Delicious Catered vegan meals
  • A lively barn dance
  • Festive hayrides
  • Morning yoga session

Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
