Let's Visit Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary

Note: The fee for the event is the ADMISSION FEE (ADULT) for the sanctuary that you will pay upon arrival

Let's spend the day with our human and non-human friends at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS)! 

Founded in 2004 (10 years already?!?!) by couple Jenny Brown & Doug Abel, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is a wonderful place, a shelter, that takes in or helps to place farm animals who have escaped some of the most horrible conditions that humans would never dare to imagine. It gives them, and the humans around them, hope towards putting an end to animal cruelty through love, care and compassion. 

Carlo & I first visited WFAS back in 2011 and were amazed by the experience. We have been there a couple of times since, even for their annual Thanksliving event to celebrate the turkeys and all other animals! We're always humbled by the resilience of the animals and the staff!

We're meeting at 11:00am at WFAS at the Visitor's Center! After our tour, we'll head to Minnewaska State Park for a picnic (bring a packed lunch). We'll end the day with a short ride to New Paltz to visit Lagusta's Luscious (vegan chocolate, y'all!)

WFAS Admission 
$10 Adults 
$5 Kids/Toddlers/Seniors 
Members Free 

Minnewaska State Park Admission
$8 per vehicle

If you're willing to carpool or need a ride, please post in the comments!

If you're unable to make it for the group meet-up, but still plan to visit, please note that operating hours are Saturday & Sunday 11:00am-4:00pm

Tours are offered at 3 times during the day:

• 11:30am 

• 1:15pm

• 3:00pm

Later this year, I hope to coordinate a volunteer day for our group. So, if you don't make this event, there will be another chance to go with the group!

    My daughter and I are driving up together. If there isn't room in the 11:30 tour with the rest if you, that's okay. Such a beautiful day, we are inspired to be out in it! See you later...

    Sadly, my parents won't be coming with us. But, that does mean we have an extra seat (or two) in our car! Is anyone still looking for a lift??? We are in Ossining!

    I've emailed the details for Saturday's trip to your emails registered with Meetup.com. If you didn't receive the email, the details are also posted on our group's message board.

    • Carmella

      Peggy, let me know if you need a ride. We're trying to limit the number of cars as possible. Right now, I have Danielle and possibly 2 friends in my car. Dina has Suzan and her mom.

      May 29, 2014

  • Peggy W.

    Where is the meeting place, the Sanctuary?

    May 29, 2014

    • Carmella

      We're coordinating that now. We'll be sending out an email with the day's plan hopefully later today.

      1 · May 29, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    We were depending on a ride from Dina and now since she isn't going to go, does anyone have room for 2 now? Please let me know asap. Thanks.

    May 24, 2014

    • Dina C.

      Hey Suzan. I will give you a call tomorrow afternoon to arrange things.

      May 27, 2014

    • Suzan P.

      Thanks Dina. Speak with you soon then.

      May 28, 2014

  • Maria

    Sorry that I won't be able to go after all, I had the waistlist spot but I thought I had indicated I needed two spots. Either way, my plus one is sick. I hope to make it for the coming volunteer event! And thanks for planning such a nice day. Hope everyone has a good time!

    I live in Bedford Hills and I can drive anyone who comes to me. I live in a condo with a large visitor's lot. Would love some company! I can take 3 or possibly 4.

    • Linda G.

      Hi Susan, I took my name off of the list over a week ago because I can no longer go. Family issues.

      May 27, 2014

    • Suzan P.

      Thanks for letting me know. Sorry to hear you will not be able to go. Take care.

      May 27, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    Mom and I still would love to ride with someone.

    May 27, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    Hi Linda,
    Could you give me a call at[masked]?
    Thanks.

    Hi Dina,
    Could you give me a call at[masked]? Thanks.

  • Dina C.

    Hi guys! Hope you all get this. My apologies but I have to back out last minute. There has been a lot going on with me lately; all good but it's kept me super busy and I totally forgot it was this weekend and just happened to be checking my emails and saw it was sooner than I thought. So sorry for inconveniences I may have caused. Circumstances totally out of my hands. Have fun! Perhaps next time!

    May 24, 2014

    • Carmella

      Dina, it's next weekend not this weekend!

      May 24, 2014

  • Norma

    What is the meeting time at Woodstock? Are we having a meal before or after?
    Looking forward to meeting those who are going!

    May 22, 2014

    • Carmella

      They do. Garden Cafe on the Green is all vegan, but it's on the small side. Looking at options or maybe even a picnic

      May 22, 2014

    • Suzan P.

      Let me know. Have great vegan Coconut Lime Cupcake recipe that I would love to make for a picnic.

      May 23, 2014

  • Dina C.

    I'm driving; if someone is located along the route I don't mind driving. I live in Mount Vernon

    May 1, 2014

    • Dina C.

      I may be bringing a friend along; nevertheless I will definitely have the room for you guys. I will get back to you within the next day and confirm details.

      May 12, 2014

      Looking foward to hearing from you-[masked] or[masked]-5211. Take care.

    Hi, is there any chance that I would be able to get a ride with anyone (and obviously contribute to gas!). I live in Riverdale, but would be happy to meet where you're leaving from :)

    May 20, 2014

    • Carmella

      If you're in Riverdale, that means you're in the Bronx like me. If it's easier, maybe I can just pick you up Danielle, unless you're already set with Linda. Just want to make it convenient for all

      May 22, 2014

      Carmella that would be extremely helpful, thank you! Linda, thank you so much for the offer but it's a lot more convenient for me if I don't have to drive anywhere :)

      May 22, 2014

  • Carmella

    All right folks! Just learned from WFAS, that we'll need to scale down the number of cars! There are only 13 spots on the property! If we can consolidate into 3-4 vehicles, that would be great. Carlo & I have room for 2 people and can pick up anyone along the way.

    Linda has a car and has offered to drive. Dina is driving, but I think she has 2-3 people in car already. Alexsis' car is full, as her family will be joining us

    If anyone else is available to drive, let me know.

    May 22, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    Sorry Dina, meant for Saturday, the 31st. Thanks, Sue.

    May 22, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    Hi Laura,
    Give me a call at[masked] so I can get your directions so that I can pick you up Saturday, the 31st.
    Thanks,
    Sue

    May 22, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    Hi Dina,
    My number is[masked]-5324. Please give me a call so we can discuss logistics for this coming Saturday. Thanks, Sue

    May 22, 2014

  • Carmella

    Email sent to all who RSVP'd yes. If you are seeking a ride or are willing to carpool, please let me know as soon as possible. I'd like to match up folks if possible.

    Thanks!

    • Suzan P.

      Hi! I think Dina said it was okay if we carpooled with her. We could meet her wherever she says is convenient for her. Thanks!

      2 · May 5, 2014

    • Dina C.

      Yes it is okay - I'll confirm details in the next day or 2

    Is someone driving from the Mamaroneck area? Would love to come but don't have a car that day...

    April 26, 2014

    • Suzan P.

      I could pick you up and then we could go onto Mount Vernon to Dina's. My car is okay locally but would not chance it for Woodstock.

      1 · May 12, 2014

  • Suzan P.

    I, too, would like to carpool; my car is not in good shape to make the trip. I, of course, would contribute to gas expenses. I live in Rye Brook.
