Turkeys are the usual featured attraction on top of the dinner table at Thanksgiving, but the turkeys at a farm in Verona will be eating on the holiday and not be the main course.

Heartland Farm Sanctuary, founded in 2010 as a non-profit dedicated to helping homeless farm animals, will have its first Feast for the Turkeys on Thanksgiving, beginning at 10 a.m.

According to a press release from the farm, "the shelter's rescued turkeys and other birds will feast on a buffet served by Heartland staff of favorite holiday treats, including squash, pumpkin, cranberries and stuffing."

The sanctuary not only serves as a home for homeless farm animals, but it's also a place where animals and young people can connect.

"We created Heartland to provide a safe, peaceful environment where youth and farm animals could come together to heal, grow and have fun," the release said.

For more information about the Feast for the Turkeys or if you'd like to attend, contact barn manager Sarah Solberg at Sarah.Solberg@heartlandFarmSanctuary.org.
