Vegan company saves cow from dairy industry, reuniting her with calf

Yvonne O'Halloran

In support of Earth Day, vegan ice cream company Eclipse Foods has rescued a cow from the dairy industry and rehomed her at animal sanctuary Charlies Acres.

Honey, the 13 year old dairy cow was deemed too old to supply enough milk for commercial production and so will now spend her retirement years in a safe sanctuary, away from the cruel practices of the dairy industry.

Despite being able to live for around 20 years, dairy cows are often sent to slaughter at a much younger age, due to decreased milk production or ill health.

Thankfully, Honey is one of the lucky ones. She has not only escaped a heart-breaking fate but has also been reunited with her calf Benjamin, who already resided at the US sanctuary.

Speaking to Plant Based News, CEO and Co-founder Aylon Steinhart said: “At Eclipse, our mission is to create a more sustainable, healthy, and humane food system by providing consumers incredibly delicious plant-based dairy products. Starting with unbelievably creamy ice cream that require no sacrifice on taste or texture. “

“By doing this, we will be able to save not just Honey, but millions of dairy cows just like her. We’re so grateful to have Charlie’s Acres’ support in adopting Honey.

“And we are thrilled that she will now get to enjoy her retirement from the dairy farm with her son.”
