Woodstock Farm Sanctuary Facebook page

  Woodstock Farm Sanctuary takes in – or works to place – farm animals who are victims of cruelty and neglect. Most of these animals are rescued during investigations of farms, stockyards, auctions, and slaughterhouses – others arrive from humane societies and SPCA cruelty cases.

After 10 years of doing their good work in Woodstock, they are moving to a new 150 acre location in High Falls, NY. The new space is a former camp and retreat center in the heart of the Hudson Valley -- just 20 minutes from New Paltz and 90 minutes from New York City.

With more than six times the space they had in Woodstock, the sanctuary will have the resources to rescue additional farm animals as well as to increase the scale and scope of the sanctuary’s public programming.

The sanctuary is celebrating their re-opening this Saturday, September 5th. Jenny Brown is the Co-Founder and Director of the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary and she joins us.

  Milton R. Mills, M.D., serves as Associate Director of Preventive Medicine for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a North American group of doctors and laypersons dedicated to promoting improved health care, better and more appropriate nutrition, and higher standards in medical research.

Mid-Hudson Vegetarian Society and Hudson Valley Vegans will present Dr. Milton Mills in a talk at Rhinebeck Town Hall in Rhinebeck, NY this Saturday at 2pm. The presentation is entitled "What's Wrong With the Paleo Diet?"

  From their humble beginnings as a 2 1/2-acre raspberry field, Earthbound Farm now grows and distributes organic produce nationally. Co-founder Myra Goodman and her daughter Marea are skillful home cooks, and the proximity to their fields of fresh vegetables and fruits made it easy to develop creative—and definitely delicious—dishes that are not only heavy on the produce, they just happen to be vegan!

Myra Goodman joins us to talk about Straight From The Earth: 100 Irresistible Vegan Recipes For Everyone.


  Kathy Stevens has an abounding love of animals that is the foundation of compassion upon which the Catskill Animal Sanctuary is built.

More than 2,000 animals have lived at Catskill Animal Sanctuary since it’s founding in 2003. And while the love Kathy Stevens and her staff have for them is stunning, more remarkable is who the animals become at this place where kindness rules.

    While she's an actress (Blossom, The Big Bang Theory) with a PhD in neuroscience, at the end of the day Mayim Bialik is a mom, one who knows what it's like to be a busy parent with little time to spend in the kitchen.

She shares the concerns of parents everywhere: when it comes to nutrition and feeding your family, you want healthy meals, but also food that everyone—kids and parents—can enjoy, and a balanced lifestyle that's inexpensive and fuss-free.

Mayim's Vegan Table share more than 100 easy plant-based recipes for dishes that are as good to eat as they are good for you.

In October 2008, bestselling author Dr. Andrew Weil, with restaurateur Sam Fox, opened the first True Food Kitchen restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona, with the goal of creating a menu of freshly imagined meals centered on the principles of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Food Pyramid.

The restaurant has garnered the reputation of being one of the country’s healthiest, and it has become known for its use of organic and locally grown products as well as seasonal menu changes.
