Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary in Poughquag will host a vegan picnic and open house on June 30, from noon to 2 p.m. Guests can meet the staff as well as the farm animals who live there.

“Our mission is to rescue abused and neglected farmed animals, to restore them to health and to provide them with a safe and loving forever home,” says cofounder Ellen Crain. “In doing so, we hope to raise awareness about the plight of animals raised for food, and the benefits of a vegan diet for the animals, human health and the environment. We are dedicated to spreading compassion and respect for all living beings.”

There is no charge to attend, but donations are greatly appreciated, Crain says. To reserve a spot, RSVP to [email protected] and note how many people will be attending.

Safe Haven regularly welcomes visitors and kicked off its 2018 tour season in May, she says. “Our sanctuary is currently home to more than 100 rescued farm animals, including turkeys, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, ducks and rabbits. Each one of them has its own story. Our farm family members are an inspiration to us, and we hope their survival stories will inspire our visitors.”

Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary is located at 542 Gardner Hollow Rd., Poughquag, NY, in the mid-Hudson Valley. To learn more, see the animals or schedule a tour, visit
