Jon Stewart, one of the most recognized and loved TV show hosts around, has been using the past several years of his retirement helping abused and neglected farm animals find love and peace on his 12-acre farm. Jon and his wife Tracey, who is an author and animal advocate, have run Bufflehead Farm in New Jersey since 2013, hosing a variety of animals in need of love and attention. These animals include dogs, rabbits, pigs, guinea pigs, fish, and birds.
Jon and his wife Tracey decided that their farm will now be a Farm Sanctuary, part of an advocacy group which helps to end factory farm animal cruelty and also cares for abused animals. The Stewarts’ property is the fourth such Farm Sanctuary in the US and the group has plans to create many more. While no longer a regular on television, Jon is doing what he does best: compassionately giving a voice to the people and animals who aren’t able to speak up for themselves.
