Jon and Tracey Stewart to Expand Animal Sanctuary

Stewarts will extend their New Jersey branch of Farm Sanctuary to include 45 acres of land for rescued chickens, cows, pigs, goats, and more.

Comedian Jon Stewart and wife and vegan activist Tracey Stewart are planning to expand their current branch of Farm Sanctuary with 45 acres of land and new facilities. In October, the Stewarts announced that their 12-acre New Jersey property would be the fourth location of farm-animal-rescue-organization Farm Sanctuary. According to Mother Nature Network, the couple purchased a second 45-acre property in Colts Neck, NJ to serve as both a visitor education center and an expansion of their current sanctuary property—15 acres of which will be allotted to grow food for the chickens, pigs, cows, goats, and other farm animals the Stewarts plan to rescue from slaughterhouses, kill piles, live markets, and roadsides. In addition to recently rescuing a runaway bull named Frank Lee in New York, the Stewarts have been active in the vegan community with contributions such as Tracey’s book Do Unto Animals and Jon’s letter of admiration to Minneapolis vegan butcher shop The Herbivorous Butcher.
