Third Grader Helps The Farm Thursday, April 05, 2007 9-year-old Zoe Van Tieghem (below, right, with human friend Sabrina and chicken friend Cora) surprised us one day with a phone call. Instead of gifts for her birthday party, she requested donations to the Farm. She raised $120, which happens to be the annual total for a chicken sponsorship. Zoe goes to Woodstock Day School and is in the 3rd grade. She is vegetarian and loves animals.
