    I wonder how the sanctuary went - maybe you are still there?
    I have a similar dilemma - I am the main breadwinner in our family and so can't discard my job lightly. I am a doctor (psychiatrist...

    I think the coop is great and have a dividend card too. Their labelling is honest - eg if they put eggs in their products, they say if they have been battery farmed. I'd rather they didn't use eggs...
