We are still seeking volunteers for this event. Please email Breezy Rondilone to sign up to volunteer.

Mother’s Day is definitely the best time to show moms just how much they mean to us! Unfortunately, in animal agriculture, there are countless mothers who never get to experience the joy of raising their children, and who are forgotten about and not recognized at all. Here at Farm Sanctuary, we honor mothers of all species, human and non-human alike.

We invite you to join us for our first-ever Mother’s Day Brunch, where we’ll be showing love to mothers everywhere, be they humans, cows, pigs, goats, sheep, or other animals. We’ll be celebrating with a delicious, all-vegan brunch; an educational presentation about the mothers of Farm Sanctuary; and of course, sanctuary time, where guests can enjoy time with our rescued animals and even meet some of the mothers who make this place so incredibly special.
