Pioneers Press is a publishing house, small press distro and animal rescue, located on a farm in rural Kansas. They promote literature on social justice, sustainable living, cruelty free lifestyle and issues surrounding mental health, gender and sexuality. They are the real fucking deal! Vegans raising a family, growing their own food, taking in unwanted or injured farm animals, while providing platforms to launch freedom and self sufficiency for the greater good. Champs!
Heaps of great reading on animal rights from all eras. They also distribute Will Potter’s book ‘Green is the New Red’ and published, vegan author/illustrator, Matt Gauck’s ‘Next Stop Adventure.The book!’ I’m reading it right now and his stories fill my heart with joy.
I use to joke I was “The only vegan in the village” till I started wearing their ‘GO VEGAN’ button on my jacket. It’s opened up conversation to strangers around town saying either ‘Hey I’m vegan too!’ or “My son is vegan’ or ‘I’m almost vegan but you make me think I should go all the way’. I was in a coffee shop and the girl behind the counter, who turned out to be vegan, excitedly told me -without my asking, I was just there for coffee- all the things they had we could eat. All I’m doing is wearing a button. Easy, effortless but reaping pretty good rewards connecting my introverted self to the community.
They are genuinely good people, offering what I consider, a vital service to us all.
