On Saturday, July 6th under clear blue skies, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary’s annual festival featured an extensive all-vegan menu, music by artists such as the twice-Grammy-nominated Tracy Bonham, and enough warm-weather activities to keep rambunctious kids very busy and happy.  Dan and Annie Shannon, authors of the cookbook Betty Goes Vegan, ran a cooking demo for an attentive crowd.  Visitors communed with over 200 rescued farm animals who call the sanctuary home.

“This was by far our most successful event ever,” said Director Jenny Brown.  “We had tons of locals attend but had visitors from all over the northeast – and even one couple all the way from Dallas!”  At Woodstock Sanctuary we strive to show people how really delicious, accessible food can be made without any animal products. This year head chef David Silver and co-chef Marty Krutolo cranked out a cornucopia of such remarkable offerings as buffalo “chik’n” wraps with vegan blue cheese dressing, Vietnamese bahn mi baguettes with Faux Gras terrine, and Israeli vegan shawarma (see detailed menu below). 

 “Where else can you mingle with a very friendly chicken named Ophelia and then have a buffalo chicken-free wrap?” said Co-Founder Doug Abel.  “We really hope the folks who came are inspired by the food – and the animals — to look at their own diets in a new way.”

 Over $15,000 in critical funds were raised, which came at a particularly significant time.  “It costs about $50,000 a month to operate the sanctuary,” Ms. Brown reported, “and given that a generous anonymous donor is matching all donations up to a goal of $100,000 until the end of July, this support from our community and beyond is thrilling.” (YOU CAN DONATE HERE)

There were fantastic live performances by the amazing Grammy-nominated Tracy Bonham, local legend Seth Davis, and the ever-popular Uncle Rock.
