Visiting Dean Farm Trust

Back in December, my local farm sanctuary Dean Farm Trust hosted a few guided tours. I grabbed the chance to meet all the animals and eat tasty hot vegan food with my niece. I’ve been on an unguided visit which I mentioned in my ‘Why I am not a vegan‘ post (don’t worry, I am now!) I also volunteered, cleaning out the duck pond and moving a hen house. Then in the summer of 2018 I offered seated massage at their open days. Therefore I’ve never properly had the chance to meet the residents for some selfies.

What the cluck?

    I wish there were more places like these. I think it would encourage more people to think about these kinds of animals as conscious beings, rather than commodities. Near where I live in Manchester we have a donkey sanctuary though, which is lovely and always busy.

      My son would love this. He’s obsessed with farm animals. I’d love the opportunity to learn about vegan options. I’ve been eating more plants and haven’t really had a taste for meat.

    Chickens are so precious. They are sentient beings and should be loved, cherish, and treasured. When I use to live in Toccoa, Georgia back in 2008, I met a family down the road that had a pet chicken. The chicken was so intelligent, he would walk towards me when I would call him by his name. It looks like you had a wonderful time. So cute.
