Mother's Day Visiting Day, Sunday, May 13th
The month of May was certainly a special one at the sanctuary. Many gathered to join us in a Mother's day celebration which saw the cows return to pasture for the summer after what we can all appreciate was a long, cold winter. It was a delight to see them frolic and fawn as Mike made the call to signal that days of warmer weather and plentiful green fields were finally here. For many of the younger residents, this was their first taste of spring, which added an even sweeter touch to a day already filled with remembrance for love, life, companionship and motherhood.

We would like to highlight a loyal volunteer at the farm, Taunya, who hosted a Respect Animals Week (RAW) at a local school this past month, which raised funds for animal organizations including Farmhouse! Taunya along with her partner Mike, as well their children Oatie and Tilda (pictured above) deserve a huge thanks for the time and resources they have dedicated to the project. Through their busy lives they still manage to help both on-site and behind the scenes, making sure things run smoothly. Thank you for teaching compassion!

In the meantime, we have two more amazing events planned for the month of June!
Sunday, June 10th Visiting Day and Bake Sale
Just because the cows have been let out to pasture, doesn't mean they don't want some extra love and treats! Come join us for a fun day 🐮🐓 We will also be selling yummy vegan baked goods to fundraise! - There will be hot food for purchase from Peas+Thank You - If you are able to donate vegan baked goods, please contact us - This is a family friendly event - As much as we all love animals, please no pets! **There is no admission fee, but we will graciously accept donations to help us feed all the hungry bellies at the sanctuary!

See details here: https://findveglove.com/guarantee ABOUT VEG SPEED DATE We help people find veg love, creating life-changing matches and love stories in the veg community. Veg Speed Date is exclusively for vegan and vegetarian singles. We have thought through every detail to make sure people have a great time, don’t need to worry about feeling rejected, and have the best chance of making that special connection. Since February 2017 we’ve been successfully running events in cities all over North America. Our events have generated 1000+ veg love connections and we're just getting started! WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIS EVENT Expect a fun, friendly, and incredibly effective way to meet veg singles. Think of it like mini-chats, just getting to know someone, face-to-face, for a few minutes. Spots are limited to 30 participants, because we’ve found that an intimate, get-to-really-know-you setting works the best for making real connections. We also make sure there’s an equal gender ratio – or very close to it – at every one of our male/female pairing events. Our online matching system is easy to use, smartphone compatible, and serves up your results faster than any other speed dating provider. By popular request, we now support both dating and friendship matches
