NBSV 157: Ex sheep farmer, now vegan JH Burnett shares his powerful story

Sheep farmer-turned-vegan JH Burnett speaks with me about his experiences in animal agriculture, his vegan story, and more. This is one of the most raw stories that’s been aired on the podcast thus far, so I’m really grateful to JH for sharing his story.

JH is a former sheep farmer and breeder in the dairy industry who, after the atrocities he witnessed in these industries, turned vegan and an animal rights activist. He openly shares his gruelling story and absolute low point, and how he gave life a second chance, dedicating himself to the animal liberation movement.

He’s written a memoir, Ex-Farmer Goes Vegan, offers vegan-inspired coaching programs, and, along with his wife Elle, co-creates a variety of vegan children’s books.

Trigger warnings: animal abuse and suicide.
