Feeding our rescued turkeys

Over 240 guests came to celebrate Woodstock Farm Sanctuary’s 10th annual ThanksLiving celebration on November 15th in High Falls, NY.

This year tickets sold out in an hour, and the event raised over $80,000 to help the organization’s mission of rescuing farm animals and advocating for veganism.

As part of this decade-old tradition, the rescued turkeys were the VIPs and served gourmet meals first.

Chef Jay Astafa’s Fried Mac & Cheese Balls

 

 

Guest Chef Jay Astafa created a restaurant-quality presentation of delicious hors d’oeuvres and an artisanal vegan cheese spread! The main course was equally mouth-watering, a seitan turk’y roast with truffle mashed potatoes, wild mushroom gravy and orange cranberry sauce.
