We believe protecting cows is one of the most important components of protecting the earth. According to the ancient Vedic texts the cow is the representative of Mother Earth. And, when the cow and the bull are mistreated, Mother Earth withdraws her bounty.
The cow is considered one of our mothers, as she gives us her milk and thus nurtures our health and well being. In our farm no cow, bull or calf is slaughtered. Instead we protect and care for cows throughout their lives. Every cow, every bull should have the right to live in dignity and integrity and under humane and loving conditions. Regardless of milk production, cows and bulls also produce dung and urine which is valuable as fertilizer, compost, some medicines, cleaning products and biogas fuel.
Hey, I’m Bhumi. I was the first cow on the farm, so the farm was named after me. I’m Dhenu’s mother as well as Dharma’s and Tilak’s and at the same time Malini’s grandmother. I keep the whole herd together and make sure that everyone is well.
My favorite pastime is to eat grass but also to have fun by testing the fence and escaping because I know the grass is always greener on the other field.
Hi, I’m Tilak. With my special fur pattern and two different horns I’m the most unique Oxen of all Sweden. Compared to my twin brother Dharma I’m a little more shy but at the same time more gentle and soft.
My favorite pastime is chilling on the grass with my herd. Because I try to be gentle I let the ladies come first for eating.
Hey, I’m Dhenu, the daughter of Bhumi. When I came to the farm together with Bhumi I was very frightened when dealing with people because I’m more the introvert type. From time to time I could gain some trust. Especially when you are kind with me and give me enough time to build trust.
My favorite pastime is to spend time with my daughter Malini. Together you can find us relaxing on the grass and chewing delicious green grass.
Hey, I’m Dharma, the twin brother of Tilak. I would say I’m the biggest Oxen around but at the same time with the biggest heart. I really like spending time with my human caretakers, especially getting massages and affection. I like to be the center of attention and sometimes I can’t control my tongue and want to always be first for eating (I’m working on this).
My favorite pastime is to always be around when something exciting happens, for example when we accidentally had access to a tree garden (yummy). Also I like to be trained and go out for walks with our caretakers.
Hi, I’m Malini. I’m the daughter of Dhenu and I have the brightest smile of all of us (especially when I enjoy tasty things) and I’m white like snow in the winter. I like to be cuddled on the neck and head. That’s why I follow my caretakers when they are around.
My favorite pastime is spending time with my Mom and relaxing on the grass. I’m happy when we all are together on the field.
Our cows are family members. The cows at Bhumi's Farm are provided with lifelong care and will never have to endure the suffering they once underwent. They can enjoy a fresh supply of hay, a nice barn and green pastures. Apart from that they receive a lot of love and care from our volunteers.
The purpose of our sanctuary is:
Cow protection is not just a charity,
but a social responsibility.
