Thursday the 28th, Thanksgiving Day. 1-5pm, 14466 Liberty Church St., SE,  in Minerva, Ohio, 44657 (phone number[masked]): Please read the following message from Cherie and Glenn:

Hello Vegan Thanksgiving Day Enthusiasts!

My husband Glenn and I are excited once again to host a Vegan, Non-violent, cruelty free Thanksgiving potluck on the actual day of Thanksgiving - November the 28th, a Thursday.  We have plenty of space and a large kitchen.

We have a mini farm sanctuary for those who would like to come talk with the goats and chickens and cats and dog.

I will provide the dinner ware.  The time is scheduled for 1-5 PM, allowing everyone to get home before it gets too dark.  We are  not centrally located.  We are outside of Minerva about 70 miles from Cleveland. We are located 2 miles west of Minerva in the hills. We are an option for those with a trail blazing spirit.  Car pooling may be a great option!

Our little farm sanctuary is a story in itself.  We used to think that dairy (raw dairy) was good for you and the only way to have raw is to either grow your own or have a herd share (we did both).  So we have these wonderful goats that we used to milk.  And our place came with chicken's whose eggs we used to eat.  Anyway, over our evolution we have come to see that dairy and eggs are not good for you or for them.  So now they are our "pets that we don't milk" (we used to call them our "pets that we milk") and we are committed to caring for them and providing for them as long as they live.  We have rescued goats over the years but we are not actively planning on adding to the herd and there is no breeding going on.  Some of them are quite old for domestic goats.  We love having them all - they are great friends.

There are woods here for hiking.  I would recommend bringing hiking boots and blaze orange something to wear - unfortunately it is that time of year again.

We are really looking forward to seeing all our friends from last year and hopefully add some new friends this year.  Plant strong and pain free. Before the event please indicate what entree, desert, appetizer, etc., you plan on bringing.

Thanks, Cherie and Glenn

    The roads have been cleared and our forecast is dry. For a slightly more gentle way into our valley you could go through Minerva (it's a lovely little place). Instead of turning right on Paris keep going straight on 30. You can turn right at the first traffic light and turn right again at the first stop sign. That's Line Street which becomes Liberty Church (our street) outside of town. For a real treat instead of the first traffic light turn right at the second traffic light. That's downtown Minerva (don't blink). Market Street (Rt 183). Turn right at the second traffic light. That's Line Street. Follow Line/Liberty Church over hill and dale. Watch for 'Milligan Farms' on your left. We are just past on the left. I'll put out my 'veggie' sign. Looking forward to you being here.

    I am planning on bringing some kind of vegan sweet potato dish if that works for the hosts!

    Will probably be a Thanksgiving orphan this year-my family is in Virginia and won't be able to go-so would love to attend. Plus I'm the only vegan in my family and goats are one of my favorite animals!

    It's my favorite place to be and it's the best Thanksgiving Dinner that I have ever experienced in my entire life!!! I am ordering the Thanksgiving Vegan Wellington Roll and gravy from Native Foods (that arrived two weeks too late last year). Native Foods put it up on their web site November 4th to take orders!!! I will have it delivered to Cherie's place so it can be baked on the spot, since I am two hours away. (is that okay Cherie)?

      Of course. We are really looking forward to Thanksgiving too. They've been the best ever for us too. There are so many wonderful people who come. I'm so glad we are able to do this.

    Just a reminder everyone - if you would like to take any food home from you need to place your order no later than the 19th of November. Thanks.
