Yesterday afternoon I had the privilege to participate in a fundraiser for The Farmhouse Garden Animal Home located in Uxbridge, Ontario. Hundreds of people gathered in the simple rustic surroundings of the farm owned by Mike Lanigan, which is home to several animals including cows, horses, ducks and chickens to name a few. Mike is a cattle rancher turned animal advocate and organic vegetable farmer.
Organized by Priya and Alex from A Vine Romance, there was of course an amazing selection of wines from Kacaba Vineyards and Winery which were a beautiful compliment to our dairy-free cashew cheeses.
The local musicians were fantastic and included: Tim Fors, Raven Murphy, John Lemme, James Buren, Rob Wakelin and Chris Saunders. They set a great tone for the event and kept our toes tapping and our hearts warm!
Mother nature cooperated and the rain stopped long enough for everyone to stay fairly dry!
A great big thank you to everyone that took the time out of their busy schedules to come together to enjoy some vegan wine and cheese and who dug into their pockets to generously support the animals despite the cold temperatures.
If you missed the event and would like to show your support to Farmhouse Gardens Animal Home, I encourage you to visit their website.
