Cancelled due to weather: Come Meet the Animals

05/03/2019 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Cancelled due to weather!

 

The Vegetarian and Vegan Club is going on a field trip, and we want you to come along!

When and Where: On Friday, April 26th, we’re volunteering at Barnyard Sanctuary Farm, in
Columbia, New Jersey (Warren County). We’re leaving school at 9:30 AM and we’ll be back at
around 3:40 PM. We’re carpooling with other students and professors.

The Tour: The staff at the farm will give us a quick tour when we get there. They need to know
that we understand what we will be doing and are physically able to do the work.
Duties: Picking up sticks, rocks, raking poop (lots of farm animal poop lol) in the fields/pens. It is
very physical work.

Perks: We will be working in and amongst the animals themselves. Lots of opportunities for
scratching, belly rubs and kisses to be had.

The Animals: Barnyard Sanctuary Farm is home to horses, donkeys, mules, cows, water
buffalo, hogs, pot bellies, sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, emus and many other type birds. In
total, about 700 animals live there!

Lunch: We all have a choice of bringing vegetarian/vegan lunches (no meat allowed on the
property out of respect to its inhabitants) or going off site to local fast food -there’s a McDonald’s
five minutes away, though we’d love it if we could all have lunch together at the farm!

Provided: Porta-potty, water, tools.

You’ll have to bring: Please dress warmly and wear boots. You can always peel off layers if you
get too warm. Be sensible in your attire. Your shoes will get wet, muddy and poopy, as will the
cuffs of your pants. You should bring a change of shoes and a plastic bag for your dirty ones.

Cost: $5 tickets will be sold at the Information Window in order to pay the students and
professors who drive for gas. If we make any extra money, it’ll be used for future club events.
