As a child Gene Baur had no idea that he would go on to create what many people believe is ‘the happiest place on earth’.
In this episode of MHP this ultra marathon runner shares his journey- from growing up in the Hollywood Hills to co-founding Farm Sanctuary, a remarkable sanctuary for farm animals across America.
While Gene tells some heart breaking stories from a life advocating on behalf of animals, he also reflects on the remarkable transformations that both humans and other animals make once they start living the farm sanctuary life.
Along the way, this infectiously positive man muses on the magic of music, the incredible benefits of a plant based diet, what the animals have taught him and why big corporations jumping on the plant based bandwagon isn’t all bad.
Hailed as ‘the conscience of the food movement” by Time magazine, Gene Baur is the president and Co-founder of Farm Sanctuary. His advocacy work on behalf of farm animals has lead to changes in U.S animal welfare and cruelty laws.
As an author, his 2008 book Farm Sanctuary, Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food was a national best seller, and his latest book is called Living The Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Ever Day.
Gene continues to be at the forefront of positive activism for animals, people and the planet. You can learn more about Gene and the wonderful work of Farm Sanctuary at www.farmsanctuary.org
