2016 Summer of Peace Open House

Posted on: June 14th, 2016 by CR Admin 2 5 Comments

With less than a month to go, we’re gearing up for our biggest fundraiser of the year, our Summer of Peace Open House, happening on July 9th from 12 PM to 4 PM.


This is a great opportunity to visit the farm sanctuary with younger children and we’ll have plenty for them to do, including a bouncy castle, face painting and vegan ice cream, not to mention hanging around with our donkeys and miniature goats!


We’ll also have opportunities for people to learn about the treatment of animals on farms and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and see how farm animals live in an environment free from harm and abuse.


In addition, the tasty vegan BBQ will be up and running, along with our bake sale, popular tombola raffle and our Cedar Row merchandise tent. So come by, relax and enjoy the day at Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary. We can’t wait to see you here.

Fostering Friendships

In addition to rescuing and rehoming farmed animals, Cedar Row has created and fostered friendships between animals that wouldn’t normally seem possible. Pigs hanging around with dogs, turkeys resting on goats, cats babysitting baby pigs, inseparable geese and ducks…. The list goes on.


Gabe, Geronimo, Deb & Sophia

These friendships shouldn’t surprise anyone; people from all walks of life find ways to get along and form bonds despite coming from all different backgrounds and locations. Animals in similar situations do the exact same thing. 🙂

Penelope & Herb

Animals show signs of stress, they grieve, they express joy and they love. One of our cats, Herb, takes a special interest in baby pigs that make their way to Cedar Row especially when they’re adjusting to their new surroundings. He spends time with them, sleeps in straw with them and shows them the ropes around the sanctuary. It’s a bond that wasn’t expected but one that show the compassion that animals have for each other.


Midas & Penny

Midas, the Great Dane, has a similar interest in new arrivals. This past winter he has busied himself by playing and accompanying Darcy and Penny around the farm, never more than a few feet from them when they’re exploring.

It’s time to ask ourselves a question; if animals can get along with each other, shouldn’t we be able to get along with them? 🙂

If you’d like to meet our animal friends at Cedar Row, sign up for one of our work visits here or come to our Summer of Peace Open House on July 9th!



Summer of Peace Open House

Posted on: June 15th, 2015 by CR Admin 2 6 Comments



It’s almost that time of year again; our Summer of Peace Open House!

We’re busy at work getting the farm ready for all the visitors and we’re very excited to host this event and have people come out and see what a farm sanctuary is all about.

We’ll have a vegan bake sale with lots of goodies from some amazing vegan bakers, a vegan bbq featuring some delicious cruelty-free food and a few other surprises for you!

As always, our animals (who love attention) will be on hand to welcome you to their home and entertain everyone with their everyday antics and amazing personalities.

As a reminder, this is a great time to bring children under 12 (and over 12 as it happens) to the farm sanctuary to teach them about compassion and kindness towards our animals friends.

Bring your appetite, your love of animals and (if possible) a donation to help us keep up the level of care our residents deserve.

And The Winners Are…
