Not really known for being a hot tourist town, Orland, California is actually quite special. With hundreds of people visiting this small farm town north of Sacramento, the main attraction is Farm Sanctuary. A beautiful farm dedicated to saving farm animals from slaughterhouses and other awful environments, giving them a new lease on life. Though Chico is only 20 minutes away, I was surprised to find some compassionate eats in this sweet, historic, all-American town!
One of the most beautiful places you can visit is Farm Sanctuary. With locations in New York, Los Angeles and in Orland, the opportunity to spend time with rescued farm animals is priceless. Founded by the compassionate vegan, Gene Bauer, Farm Sanctuary is the epitome of ethical vegan locations and if you find yourself getting the vegan munchies, be sure to stop into the gift shop for some goodies! I had the honor of speaking at their annual Celebration for the Turkeys this past Thanksgiving. A wonderful event that celebrates the turkeys, instead of consuming them, and feeds over 200 guests a delicious vegan Thanksgiving meal. It is 1 of 2 big events they do at each of the locations and one that everyone should experience at least once ; )
