ANNA SWEET

CO-FOUNDER

Anna grew up on a small farm in Upstate New York. After a decade working on the west coast in the tech industry and volunteering at several small animal rescues, she knew her dream was to eventually open a rescue of her own. When a career change brought her and her husband Nate to the Bay Area, they decided to seize the opportunity of making their farm animal sanctuary a reality. She currently works full time in tech, but dedicates her evenings & weekends to working with the animals of Sweet Farm and helping spread it's message.
