We had the sweetest time celebrating Bear’s 3rd birthday at Farm Sanctuary. It was a rager! The day kicked off with farm tours where kids and their parents loved up on animals from cows to chickens to lamas. Afterwards, we ate pizza made by Olive Wood Pizza. Olive Wood Pizza travels from farmer market to farmer market all over L.A. I first tried their pizza at a friend’s party and hadn’t stopped thinking about it since. Their vegan pizza is gourmet and delicious. Some of the pies included were: Artichoke Heart and Sun Dried Tomato Pizza with Lemon Hummus and Roasted Mushrooms, Classic Marinara with Fresh Basil, and Field Roast ™ Vegan Sausage with Yukon Gold Potatoes, Vegan Basil Pesto, Caramelized Onions and Roasted Anaheim Chili Peppers. Yum!! And a Mixed Greens Salad.
After picnicking on the Farm’s courtyard, a drum circle broke out. Adam, one of Christopher’s old friends, hooked us up with a ton of drums. The kids has a blast drumming or playing whatever musical instrument they brought.
Once the drumming winded down, it was cake time. We got our cake from Real Food Daily. It was a vanilla based cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. It was decadent and so tasty!
Then, kids fed the chickens. Notice the photo below of their food on the silver plater! Bear loved hanging out with the chickens and feeding them lettuce and berries.
At the end of the day, the Farm Sanctuary staff surprised Bear with an incredible birthday gift. They had just rescued a baby lamb (8 days old!!) that was found abandoned in a barn in LA country and decided to name her Bear! She was still in a fragile state so she couldn’t be exposed to large groups of people but once the majority of guests took off she was brought out. She was so gentle and adorable. Bear was thrilled. It was beautiful.
From loving up the animals to a raging drum circle with the most delicious vegan food and sunshine- it was a fun-filled and happy day. So grateful for Farm Sanctuary for hosting and for all our friends and family who came.
