FILM & FOOD FESTIVAL
You can make a difference in the world by what you eat -- come and learn how in a fun and entertaining way. A delicious selection of films and food will be presented that aim to raise consciousness about the connection of your plate with the environment, health, and animals. Come for just the food, or take in a movie or two (or all). Interesting panelists and filmmakers will be on board to answer your questions.
Its been one month since our First Annual Hoe Down and we want to say thanks again to all of our sponsors, volunteers, auction & food/drink donors, and attendees for making it such a fun and successful fundraising event! Thanks to all of you we were able to raise more than $27,000 to support the animals at Rancho!
Save the date for next year's Hoe Down on September 1, 2019.

A forever home
At Rancho Compasión, we provide a home to previously neglected, exploited, and abused farm animals. Founded by Miyoko and Michael Schinner, our home and sanctuary nest in the bucolic town of Nicasio, California, surrounded by beautiful redwood trees, bountiful wildlife, and a rich farming culture. We open our home to a growing number of rescued animals with the support of compassionate family and volunteer caretakers.
Meet our family
We have a big family! We provide home for rescued goats, sheep, cows, pigs, chickens, and ducks. Meet Reggie, Goober, Princess and much more. Life on the ranch doesn't get any better - or more compassionate - than this.
It takes many hours, many hands, and many kind hearts to keep things running smoothly here, and projects always abound. We welcome occasional and regular volunteers. Come on down to the ranch and lend a hand!
From volunteer workdays, school fieldtrips, potlucks, visitation, to vineyard dinners, the Rancho is often humming with activity. Visitations are monthly from spring through fall (weather permitting) on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Check out our calendar for more information.
