Video: Down on the Farm: With Farm Animal Whisperer Susie Coston

More from Voices of the Food Revolution by John Robbins:  Down on the Farm with Farm Animal Whisperer Susie Coston. Up-close and personal at Farm Sanctuary.  I love this!

The videos above and below capture real, spontaneous moments on the Farm,  from pasture to pasture, in the barns.  This 175-acre Farm in Watkins Glen, New York rescues factory farm animals. For these animals, Farm Sanctuary restores life, a real life–pain-free and respectful, free-range, free-run–and open. Connection and kindness replace the cruelty and corruption of factory farms.

‘Farm Animal Whisperer’ Susie Coston shares anecdotes, stories and the bonds between those in  Farm Sanctuary, animals and people alike.

Video: More up close and personal with Farm Sanctuary rescues

All animals at Farm Sanctuary have a story, like Bruno the cow. Enroute to slaughter, Bruno fell off of the truck. Farm Sanctuary rescued him–Bruno, and other animal ‘rescues’ just like him. Cheers to all involved!

Farm Sanctuary has locations in Watkins Glen, New York and Orland, California.

Everything in this painting is “organic,” even the caterpillar! This Vladimir Kush painting  is definitely memorable! Kush is an artist who transforms the ordinary into the fantastic. This “butterfly in the apple” is just one example of his artwork.

For any Vladimir Kush painting you’ll have to look twice–at least–to fully GET what his paintings show. Kush calls his style–or approach‘metaphorical realism,’ and he’s clearly a master.

Here’s more wit and wonder from Vladimir Kush:

These paintings from Vladimir Kush give new meaning to a standard breakfast egg order of  “over easy.” Fun. Maybe “fun” should be  a requirement for art–and food!  Kush’s paintings certainly deliver!

Video: SAMSARA food sequence from Baraka & Samsara

This video will gut you! I could weep! This 6-minute video, circulated recently on Twitter by Stop_GMO_Canada,  speaks volumes about our relationship to our fellow creatures, to food, and to what we’ve become as a society. THIS the video achieves without uttering a single word!

Though, personally, a vegetarian–THIS is still what goes on in the world, and that assigns responsibility equally to us all, me included. The Samsara food sequence is an unforgettable video.
