Fun Things To Do In Woodstock NY - Ulster County Real Estate Information

Woodstock NY Real Estate Ulster CountyLooking for fun things to do in Woodstock NY? Perhaps you're just visiting or maybe viewing real estate in Woodstock and are looking for a fun outdoor activity. The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is a great place to visit for the afternoon; perfect for families, animal lovers, and people interested in philanthropic work and organizations. The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary rescues farm animals that have been abused, neglected, abandoned or all of the above. The cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, ducks, and goats that live there have been given a 2nd chance at life, and to see these animals now living well and happy is a moving and thought-provoking experience.

Woodstock NY Farm Animal Sanctuary Hudson ValleyThe immediate mission of the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is to rescue animals. The broader goal however, is to raise awareness about how meat and poultry products are produced in our society. The idea is simple and extremely effective: to let people come face to face with the animals that were supposed to be nothing more than food on a plate. Once they've cuddled with a sheep, felt the soft feathers of a chicken, or rubbed the belly of a jolly pig, people will think very differently about what they eat. Started in 2004, the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary began with just a few chickens and a rooster that had been rescued. Now it is a thriving farm, hosting school field trips and public events, all while continuing to rescue and find homes for abused farm animals.

Fun Things To Do In Woodstock NY Woodstock Farm Animal SanctuaryBut you don't have to be a strict vegetarian or "anti-farms" to appreciate the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary; in fact it's quite the opposite! Sadly, as smaller-scale, family farms are dwindling away in the Hudson Valley region and beyond, the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is increasingly becoming one of the few places that the general public (our younger generations in particular) can see a working farm and interact with the animals. All are welcome to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, meat eaters included! You need only to be an animal lover and you'll be in your glory with these grateful, happy, rescued farm animals! Visiting the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is a great activity for children, and the perfect way to get outside on a nice day. Love animals but a farm's just not your thing? Browse the shops on Main Street Woodstock NY and grab yourself a nice meal and or drink. - The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary - 35 Van Wagner Road - Willow NY 12495 - (845) 679-5955 - www.woodstocksanctuary.org

Dylan the Woodstock Farm Animal Santuary is a great place.  The pig and piglets as well as the hen seem to like the new environment.  Having a place for rescue animals is something communities should have.

Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary looks like a fun place.  There's something pretty special about a place with animals and the ability to get back to nature.

Half the people I know claim to have been at Woodstock back in the days of revolution.

Great place.

Time for a new event.

Hi Dylan. Thanks for writing about Woodstock. We're planning a weekend trip to Walton in October and just might try to wander over that way.

Definitely worth the trek up from Newburgh, Janis!  Even if you're not a vegan, seeing these animals thrive in a safe environment is really cool!
