10/08/20 - Visit A Place Where Forgotten Farm Animals Are Loved

American Family Farmer and Host Doug Stephan begins with Agriculture News; leading off with 46-million eggs being donated to food banks by Egg Ranchers. Then, news of higher prices of hay and pumpkins, due to weather issues. Next, we meet Karin Taylor, who owns and operates the renowned animal sanctuary Mandalay Farms in Jupiter, Florida. With over 250 animals it is home to a variety of furry, feathered and scaly friends including miniature horses, monkeys, miniature donkeys, horses, goats, tortoises, wallabies, llamas, turkeys, chickens, emus, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits and many more. Mandalay Farms provides a loving and pristine environment for animals, in turn providing a stable and nurturing environment for underprivileged and at-risk children and those with special needs. As COVID continues, she is reopening her farm for virtual tours and revolutionary animal therapy programs this month. Finally, Farmer Doug offers his opinion that that Farmers should encourage Farm Tourism and that Farmers adhere strictly to COVID guidelines.
