Look out Milaca, MN!
On April 19th, 2017, Aubry and Kale of The Herbivorous Butcher and Marie, director of Herbivorous Acres made the exciting announcement that we have secured land in Milaca, MN! We were approached by a lovely family that made us an offer we couldn’t refuse and they also donated a large portion of the farm so that Herbivorous Acres could get started. The farm with the houses and buildings is 15.33 acres and we also were offered a 20 acre parcel of vacant land across the street for future development. We close on August 1st and will already have some animals that we will inherit on the farm. The farm is currently operational and it comes with many out buildings as well as a 2nd house that we will use as an AirBnB until we can get our tiny house/tiny cabin operation up and running. We are holding a few more fundraisers in order to make the down payment on the property as well as covering operational costs while we get going. The goal is $100k by August 1st. We hope that with your help, we can make Herbivorous Acres a reality!
Many of you are just as excited as we are about how quickly Herbivorous Acres is moving forward and we can’t thank everyone enough for all the support so far. We are looking forward to opening to the public and starting the process of rescuing. This is not only an exciting time for our supporters, but for MN as a whole since we will be joining a strong and rapidly growing network of farm sanctuaries in the Midwest. There is such a need and we are thrilled to join the cause.
