Get Ready for Meatout this March!

It may be hard to believe, but spring is just around the corner! Every year on the first day of spring, thousands take part in our annual campaign to encourage the public to go vegan for a day on March 20th. This year, we’re excited to roll out a revamped website, with cool interactive features, meal plans for every diet level, and more.

Stay tuned next week for the launch of Meatout 2015!

Cow's milk sales volume has gone down 12 percent over the past six years, according to analysts.

Meet FARM's Digital Media Assistant

Brandon Whittaker assists FARM part-time with our digital media. He first became involved volunteering at AR2013. He was so moved by his experience, that he became a vegan. Brandon has been operating a pay-per-view booth for FARM at the Richmond VegFest for the past two years, and he volunteers at a no-kill shelter.
