Our 12th show features an interview with Jenny Brown and Ashley Smith of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in Woodstock, NY. Jenny and her husband Doug bought the undeveloped land two years ago and have since built pastures and barns and filled them with rescued farm animals including goats, sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys. The sanctuary is set to open to the public this summer and Jenny and Ashley share their stories of starting the farm and some of the animals that live there. We will also hear how these activist women and their husbands got into a fur fight while visiting Italy.
Also in this show we talk to Leslie Cerier, a cookbook author who lives in western MA and also runs a vegetarian catering business. Finally we hear from Tricia Ritterbush, Farm Sanctuary's public outreach coordinator, who tells us about the upcoming Farm Animal Forum in San Francisco and the 2006 Gala which will celebrate Farm Sanctuary's 20th anniversary.
In the news, a father and son die in manure pond at the dairy where they lived.
