Farm Sanctuary Hosts Free Vegan Picnic and Open House: noon to 2 p.m. on June 29

Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary, home to more than 100 rescued farm animals, from bunnies to horses, will host a vegan picnic and open house from noon to 2 p.m. on June 29.

“This is a great opportunity to start your summer by rekindling your affection for animals and finding out how delicious vegan food can be,” says Ellen Crain, co-founder of Safe Haven. “There is no charge to attend, but donations are greatly appreciated. Just email us to let us know how many people will be attending so we can be certain to have enough food. You can also visit our website to see the animals.”

Safe Haven’s mission is to rescue abused and neglected farmed animals, restore them to health and provide them with a safe and loving forever home, Crain says. “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.”

Location: Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary, 542 Gardner Hollow Rd., Poughquag, NY. For more info, contact the farm at [email protected] or visit
