|About||The historic victorian farm has become a safe place of refuge for all human and non-human beings who step foot onto the farm. Mockingbird Farm, Inc. is dedicated and devoted to providing forever sanctuary to farm animals who are in need of rescue.|
|Mission||Mockingbird Farm is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable farm sanctuary in Upstate NY dedicated to compassionate living. Our mission is grounded in the understanding that animals have the right to a life free of pain, suffering or exploitation. We rescue farmed animals from situations of abuse, neglect, abandonment, surrender and/or factory farming. Mockingbird Farm provides a home and lifetime care to animals regardless of their condition or past. With our team of committed, mindful and passionate caretakers, it is our goal to improve the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of the animals who come to live on the farm. We believe in the power of the human-animal bond in only a mutually beneficial environment. Mockingbird Farm is committed to raising awareness and providing education on the conditions of factory farming and overall ethical treatment of animals.|
Mockingbird Farm is the heart child of co-founders, best friends and lifetime animal advocates Jonell Belcher and Jon Tedd. After a decade of planning, the farm was finally purchased by Jonell and her spouse Joe Chudyk. After making major repairs and updates to the farm utilizing their own personal resources, and the help of our other incredible board director Jasmyn Morris, we became a 501(c)3 charitable farm sanctuary and could not be more grateful for your support.
We are excited to share this journey with you, and welcome you to get to know us and the animals! Please come join us soon for organized volunteer days, gatherings, farm tours and delicious vegan picnics!
Why is it named Mockingbird Farm?
It all started with Atticus. A beloved and devoted 110lb weimaraner who passed away at the age of 13 in the spring of 2017.
