Leanne Cronquist is the Shelter Director at Farm Sanctuary, not a volunteer. Otherwise, great story!

Not very well publicized! Didn't read a word about it beforehand.

Wait, but they're still gonna eat the birds next week, right? I hate to see all that food go to waste in tough times like this.

Thanks you Robin, for writing about Farm Sanctuary. You did a great job explaining the philosophy of the sanctuary. As a vegetarian/aspiring vegan, I love seeing aarticles like yours, that increase awareness to the cruelties of factory farming. I learned about the organization earlier this year and joined their annual "Walk for Farm Animals". I came up from San Francisco to see the Celebration of the Turkeys and was so happy to see you there writing about it. I hope more people will go visit Farm Sanctuary, join the cause and help animals have better lives, free of cruelty. Thank you again!
Sincerely,

Julie: Come up to my farm sometime and you can see how I treat my cattle. I am not a factory farmer and most farmers are not either. We care about our animals and we are delivering a quality product to our customers. I don't take any subsidy and I don't make lots of money. I enjoy farming to see the calves grow and the grain that I plant sprout out of the soil. I do this every day and you would enjoy it too because living in San Francisco does not give you much of a chance to see the beauty of nature like we on the farm get to appreciate.

I have a feeling "Farmer" that Julie is one of those people that think that if you don't eat the animal, the animals never die. Anyways, have a happy Thanksgiving and thanks for farming the right way!

Julie here (and I'll speak for myself, thank you). As a registered nurse, I know about living and dying. But I will take up the offer to visit the kind farmer's farm.

I bet you're not too old to go visit the farm; they're open to the public. And it's gorgeous, out by Black Butte Lake.

Julie: Thanks for taking up my offer. We start our calving season in January and that would be a great time to see our farm. I will contact Robin and get the information...
