James Cameron's Vegan New Zealand Farm

Remember earlier this year when James Cameron scooped up more than 2,500 acres of pristine New Zealand paradise? The “Avatar” director’s new property not only includes one of the largest, privately-owned fresh water lakes in the country, but also a massive former dairy farm.

As part of the purchase agreement, the New Zealand government required that Cameron and his family continue to run part of the property as a farm. The expectation was that 57-year-old might pick up the dairy operation (New Zealand is the 8th largest milk producer in the world) – but in a new interview with the NY Times, he’s decided to go in the opposite direction. From the article:

But the current operation — built mostly around cows — poses a problem for Mr. Cameron, who said his wife, Suzy Amis, had pushed him and their children toward a plant-based diet. “So we’re looking for something more crop based,” Mr. Cameron explained. “I don’t want to be a hypocrite.”

Nice. Cameron also added that he’s already looking into improving the soil quality on his property for his new crops. Might we suggest kiwifruit?

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals
