I am a high school business law teacher and currently my classes are researching factory farms. Afterwards, we will hold a mock trial arguing whether or not factory farming should be legal. I would love to culminate the unit with a visit to a farm sanctuary. My first choice was Watkins Glen NY farm sanctuary but they are closed in October. The earliest we could go is November, given the paperwork that must be filled out to take a field trip. Does anyone know of a good educational farm sanctuary in New England? Getting intelligent, motivated high school students to visit rescued factory farm animals is how we are going to continue to effect change in our food supply. They really need to see up close and deal with what we are doing to the animals to truly comprehend why change needs to occur. Experiencing vs. researching takes learning to a whole different level. Help me to educate our future.
