In the heart of North Carolina, a young couple is shedding convention and creating a 
new design for animal care.


The film follows the hurdles as they conceptualize and build a "forever home" for cows. (*Spoiler Alert: It will not be what you think!) The story climaxes as the first cows arrive, rescued from a ranch in Oklahoma.

Forever HOME offers

a blueprint for a more compassionate way forward. 

Featuring award-winning cinematography and an endearing cast of animal characters, this new documentary sparkles with unbridled imagination, brilliant workarounds and a huge dose of compassion.

Lenore Braford and Paul Drake, an architectural designer, are pursuing their dream of building a refuge for rescued farm animals by creating a new set of blueprints. With a team of passionate volunteers, they are pioneering a concept they call "Animal Centered Design."

Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge is the antithesis of factory farms. The designs are unique to each species: the goat house is vertical and the duck house is cantilevered over a pond. The chicken house has wings that open with the sun and close for protection at night.







The Refuge currently houses 120 residents, but that's about to change. Calls are mounting to take in cows rescued from the dairy and ranching industries...
