Jenny Brown

Jenny co-founded the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary with her husband Doug in 2004, after years working in documentary television production and as an undercover videographer at stockyards. Jenny's memoir The Lucky Ones brings readers along her path from learning about the conditions animals endure to her adventures co-founding a farm sanctuary. I had a chance to talk with Jenny at the Sanctuary in February of 2015, and one of the great joys of filming there was meeting the animals. We had some good laughs as they interacted with Jenny, inspected my equipment, and ambled through the occasional shot.
