Remember to do unto animals…

As animal lovers, we can always do and be more for those who depend on us. When we make changes in our lives — whether big or small — that move us toward seeking compassion for others, we are moving in the right direction. I believe anything is possible and change can happen in the world when we as individuals live by our beliefs and let kindness be our inspiration. Remember to Do Unto Animals when you’re Doing Unto Others! I’ve learned more often than not, the rescued animal is the human, and the rescuer usually has four legs (or sometimes 3, or wings, or fins…you get the picture).

Meet Bobby Laurino

Bobby Laurino, a remarkable third generation independent farmer, has been farming for over 40 years and his family has farmed Monmouth County since 1945. As small farms around the country are getting squeezed out by large corporate farms, Bobby gives his heart and soul to whirlwind days of weeding, plowing, planting,cultivating and harvesting. There’s nowhere else he’d rather be than providing a bounty of fresh vegetables and flowers to his community. He serves up loads of generosity as well; donating produce to those in need and providing learning opportunities to children with special needs. We are honored to have him at Hockhockson Farm. Be sure to visit him from May to November at Laurino Farms Farmstand located at 372 County Road in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
