Kumar was born in Sri Lanka and spent his childhood working on the family dairy farm. He has since worked on various livestock farms, and in 2010 set up his own sheep farm in Devon. Although Kumar liked his career, he could not bear the pressure involved in the process of taking his animals to the slaughterhouse. Once his daughter, a livestock veterinarian, asked him what he planned to do with his lambs, he decided on the spot to end the animal farming he had been doing for 30 plus years. “And I said to Molly: ‘No, that is the end of it. I would not take them to the slaughterhouse. I need to find a sanctuary for them.’ which was a great relief for me.” “So, there’s no regret at all. It was a wonderful thing I have done.” He keeps 70 ewes for himself as pets and enjoys the joy and peace this brings knowing he’s made the right decision. “And also, it’s time for all of us to do something for the planet and for climate change and eat more vegetables and make sure that this planet is there for our future generations.”
