Woodstock Farm Sanctuary and The Garden Cafe

Here's some photos of the animals at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Loads of fun. We took the tour and walked around and took way too many pictures of the critters...

The educational information is available, but not too "in your face" because the animals really speak for themselves. In the case of the roosters, quite literally. The farm is very interactive and totally kid friendly. Everyone liked to be petted and the pig particularly likes the belly rub, though he couldn't really be bothered to wake up or anything. It was really hot out so most of the pigs were hanging out in the mud pond...
We headed into Woodstock for some dinner after the farm to the Garden Cafe. You can't miss it, it's right behind the drum circle. In case you're wondering, Woodstock is chock full of hippies like it's 1969...
At the Garden Cafe,I had a lovely asparagus tart, but I wolfed it down before I took a photo. We got the blinis which were an Indian spiced something over the little pancakes.

And the rockin' black bean quesadillas.

The Garden Cafe is a great vegan place to eat in Woodstock. You can sit outside, but we opted for the air conditioning which turned out to be the right move because just as we were leaving, the skies opened up for a downpour. I think the drum circle was still going...

I've always wondered if that was a good one to visit. Have you been to Farm Sanctuary also? Hey, if you think about it, could you do me a big favor? I'm in the process of moving my vegan-y posts from my family blog to my new blog. A lot of people come from your site to mine - if you're ever editing your blogger list, could you change Academy at Thousand Oaks (since I'll stop writing about vegan stuff over there) to my new blog www.veganandsoforth.blogspot.com
Sorry for the trouble but thank you!!!
