Woodstock Animal Rescue Farm

The Woodstock Farm Sanctuary provides shelter to cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, and rabbits who have been rescued from cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Originally located in Woodstock, NY, it outgrew the 23 acres it was on, and moved to the nearby town of High Falls on 150 acres. We visited this past weekend, meeting the many goats, sheep, Guineafowl, turkeys, hens and cows who now live there. We were educated about the abuse many suffer at the hands of the food industry, living in deplorable conditions. The sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains were everywhere we looked, making for an uplifting experience, beauty and kindness to animals all in one place. sheepgraze

  1. How wonderful is this. I guess I never thought of these animals being rescued..I don’t know why. I am so happy to hear they, too, can live out their lives in a happy place. God bless people who take care of them.

    • The place is seriously vegan- they mince no words in telling about the deplorable conditions hens and chickens are forced to live in. Some of the goats are escapees from slaughter houses that were given a 2nd chance at a life rather than being sent back to the slaughter house. So many stories. It is a beautiful place with very dedicated people running it

  2. Farming has changed over the years, it’s not what it was when I was a child, so it’s good to see that places like the Woodstock animal sanctuary. It is a well known place. Thank you for posting this Lisa.
