Crowdfunding since 2010

The story of a former dairy farmer, an animal rights activist and the first cow retirement home.

Butenland tells the story of Jan Gerdes, a farmer turned activist, and of Karin Mück, who liberated dogs and cats from vivisection laboratories in northern Germany in the 1980s. Together they created 'Hof Butenland' – a farm that became a sanctuary for former farmed animals.
