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?

    This is so fantastic. A large piece of land that will go towards producing fruits of the earth instead of misery. WELL-DONE!!


Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
