Thursday the 28th, Thanksgiving Day. 1-5pm, 14466 Liberty Church St., SE,  in Minerva, Ohio, 44657 (phone number[masked])

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 dogs.

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

    This sounds so wonderful !! I am a brand new meet up member and how I wish this could be my first function with this group. I have plans for that day, but please give those sweet goats a hug from me.

      Will do. Maybe you can make it out this summer. I'm planning a Butterfly Walk/Potluck in August.

      I am so bummed, William Dee, that you can't be there in Minerva, but at least you still have parents to love and be with for the Holidays!

      You will be missed. Give your parents a hug from all of us.

    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.

    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.
