SASHA Farm Spring Social

SPRING SOCIAL Sasha Farm Animal Sanctuary Goats Welcome Crew 1

The SASHA Farm Spring Social, on May 15th, was a big success and lots of fun for the animals and the visitors, who came from as far away as Chicago and Indiana.

Angel and Walker, SASHA Farm’s resident mules, also enjoyed the company and deluge of treats.  SASHA volunteer, Mae, kept Bhima the Gyr company in the pasture.

Lots of vegan goodies at the bake sale. Volunteers of all ages were on hand to match hungry shoppers with the perfect sweet treat. Thank you to all those who donated, including Bit Baking Company, in Hudsonville. Just an FYI, the Bit Baking Company vegan, gluten free Chocolate Cookies are, literally, to live for.

Delightful smells from the Shimmy Shack wafted over the farm, enticing visitors to try their vegan, gluten free yums. Seriously, does anything smell better than vegan chili fries? (No, no there is not.) Shimmy Shack is Michigan’s first and only 100% all vegan, all gluten free food truck.

Shimmy Shack owner, Debra Levantrosser, and her staff dished up burgers, fries, shakes, and chili to the throngs of hungry visitors.

Of course, at the end of the day, it’s all about the animals. SASHA Farm provides gentle, loving, and lifelong care to over 300 rescued farm animals and abused animals of all kinds. Thank you to the attendees, the volunteers, and the donors for their kind generosity and hard work. You make it all possible and the animals are grateful.

lisa viger intro picHello and so nice to “meet” you all. I’m Lisa Viger and I could not be happier to be working with SASHA Farm if I tried. I’m a long-time vegan (almost 10 years!) artist, author, photographer, gardener, food blogger, navel gazer, and lover of the planet and all its inhabitants. I blog about raw food at Raw on $10 a Day and my first raw, vegan cookbook, Easy Affordable Raw, was published in 2014. I live in southern mid-Michigan, near SASHA Farm, in a home we built ourselves, on top of a windy hill next to a wild berry patch. This is an absolutely beautiful area of Michigan and SASHA Farm happens to be in a particularly lovely spot. If you didn’t know already, SASHA Farm is utterly magical and I hope to bring you lots and lots of photos and videos and stories of the animals and the dedicated volunteers who make it so very special. Do you have something you’d like to see here? A particular animal’s story? Info on going vegan? Anything else? Just send me an email at info@sashafarm.org.
