Gene Baur


Gene Baur, president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary (, has been hailed as “the conscience of the food movement” by Time magazine. Since the mid-1980s, Gene has traveled extensively, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming and our system of cheap food production. His thought-provoking book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food, a national best seller, examines the ethical questions surrounding the production of beef, poultry, pork, milk, and eggs and exposes the mistreatment of the billions of farm animals who are exploited for food in the United States every year. His new book "Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to a Mindful, Compassionate, Animal-Friendly Life" is available for pre-order now on Amazon.
