Mike Lanigan was just a kid when he moved with his family to a farm. And for the next few decades, the sprawling site in Uxbridge, Canada, operated like a lot of farms — raising animals to sell as meat in the local market.
But after years at school and a stint with the forestry department, Lanigan decided it was time do something different at the farm.
He figured the animals he had grown up around and formed such a strong bond with might like to grow old there. And beyond that, he wanted to offer refuge to other animals in need.
In other words, Lanigan decided his cattle farm should be an animal sanctuary.
"This is the first year we haven't raised pigs or chickens," says Lanigan in a recent video made by Edith Barabash, who works with him at The Farmhouse Garden Animal Home.
And the farm's 21 cows, along with horses and geese, and a "guard donkey" named Buckwheat, will call these 100 acres home for the rest of their lives.
