Lexi was born at a small farm in New Jersey that raises pigs and other animals for meat for farm-to-table-type restaurants. Matthew, a caring college student, had worked at this farm during his culinary studies to learn animal rearing and slaughter. That experience set his life on a different path as he found himself traumatized by killing animals he had cared for and grown to love. Soon after, Matthew decided to quit culinary school and become vegetarian. When he learned that the farmer he had worked with was looking to quickly sell off a litter of piglets, he successfully talked him into giving him the runt of the litter. A few days later she was brought to Woodstock Farm Sanctuary - and for that we and little Alexis ("Lexi" for short) are forever grateful!
Since Lexi was separated from her mother within days of her birth she longs to be nurtured. We're taking turns with night duty so she can have the comfort of her substitute moms and pops and never feel alone or scared. She has stolen the hearts of everyone here so there is no shortage of volunteers looking to pig-sit!
