"Central to Sweet Farm's mission is to empower people with the knowledge needed to lead a more humane and sustainable life."

 

Our Mission

Sweet Farm is a Half Moon Bay non-profit farm animal sanctuary and heirloom vegetable farm. Our mission is to empower people with the knowledge needed to live a more humane and sustainable life. Rescue, rehabilitation, education, and outreach coupled with animal and agriculture based experiences combine to provide a positive learning experience about the many impacts of our daily food choices. Central to Sweet Farm's mission is to empower people with the knowledge needed to take simple steps to lead a more humane lifestyle and create a better world for farm animals. In addition to its focus on animal welfare, Sweet Farm is devoted to developing agricultural based education programs. Through these programs we teach the public about the impact of factory farming on plants, specifically the loss of the bio-diversity that is threatening our food system.


The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Alongside animal rescue & education around farm animal welfare, we now provide the local community healthy vegan meal options through our U-Pick CSA.
