Nature's Sanctuary - A No Kill Farm with Farm Animals as Pets and the Beauty of Nature

 

Nature's Sanctuary

A No Kill Farm with Farm Animals as Pets

And Stress Activated Products

By Adam Mundorf





For many years now I've had a dream to own a farm where animals aren't killed, produce is grown how nature intended and is a sanctuary for animals.  I've talked at length with Ori Hofmekler about this idea and I hope to someday bring it to fruition.  Imagine a place where animals and people live in harmony.  The cows are milked but pasture raised and treated like family.  Pigs are pets and treated like dogs.  Cute little goats that you can pet and play with. All the chickens are pasture raised and used exclusively for eggs, being out in the sun at will.  All of the animals graze how nature intended enjoying the elements but also having shelter to seek refuge. The animals die of old age and are honored.  A small body of water has wild fish whether that be from a stream or a lake.  

Imagine a place where everything is grown how nature intended it, wild and in the elements.  Funnily enough exposing both animals and plants to environmental stressors creates a better/more nutritious product with longevity inducing properties while keeping the animal healthier.

I also feel that when/if God gave us dominion over the animals of this Earth, he gave us a responsibility.  A responsibility to treat every living animal with respect.  Not factory farmed or abused because they are 'just animals'.  Pigs are complex, smart and loving creatures.  If you have every spent a good amount of time with animals you will learn that we have allot more in common with animals than we think.

I'll leave you with this poem :

When you get all you want and you struggle for self,
and the world makes you king for a day,
then go to the mirror and look at yourself
and see what that man has to say.

For it isn't your mother, your father or wife
whose judgment upon you must pass,
but the man, whose verdict counts most in your life
is the one staring back from the glass.

He's the fellow to please,
never mind all the rest.
For he's with you right to the end,
and you've passed your most difficult test
if the man in the glass is your friend.

You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.

You can fool the whole world,
down the highway of years,
and take pats on the back as you pass.

But your final reward will be heartache and tears
if you've cheated the man in the glass.
