Bufflehead Farm is Tracey Stewart's lifelong dream come true. (Photo: CBS Morning) The project has long been a dream for Tracey Stewart, an animal advocate and former veterinary technician, who has tirelessly worked to promote a plant-based lifestyle, animal welfare issues, and support for organizations like Farm Sanctuary. Her new book "Do Unto Animals" (currently the No. 1 bestseller in animal husbandry on Amazon) offers more than 300 pages of beautiful illustrations and promises to give readers "insights into the secret lives of animals and the kindest ways to live with and alongside them."

"It doesn’t have to be going vegan. You can advocate for them. You can show tenderness. You can play music for them. I really hope people can connect with animals the way most of us did as children."

They currently have four pigs, including two piglets rescued from the side of road in Georgia last summer. According to The New York Times, four sheep will also soon arrive — as well as many other abused or neglected farm animals in need of a home. The couple eventually plan on opening Bufflehead Farm to the public, but by appointment only to start. For Mrs. Stewart, educating about what they're trying to do at the sanctuary will be a big part of that outreach. “Our hope is to get a lot of school groups in,” she added. "CBS This Morning" recently visited the Stewarts on their farm to check in with the famous comedian post-"The Daily Show," see the work-in-progress that is Bufflehead, and talk with Tracey about her new book.
