When 25-year old Investment Banker Sonia Faruqi involuntarily found herself transitioning from New York to Toronto thanks to the Great Recession, she decided to take a break between jobs and volunteered to work on a small organic dairy farm. Her romantic notions of a "Little House On The Prairie" were quickly dispelled by the inhumane practices she discovered: dairy cows chained in stalls, artificially inseminated so they produce an astounding, and entirely unnatural 20,000 pounds of milk per year! On other Canadian farms, she saw Sows kept constantly pregnant, thousands of hens stacked in cages in darkened, unvented warehouses. From farms to the slaughter houses around the world, the horrors she witnessed transformed her.
