Experience fine dining
at Govinda’s

Established in 1969, the New Vrindaban Goshala is America’s oldest cow sanctuary. It is essentially a working dairy but with a special difference. Not only do we care for our milking cows, but we also look after the older cows that no longer produce milk. This traditional Indian practice is based on a sense of gratitude. Since we are nourished by the cow’s milk, she is like our mother and should be cared for with love until the end of her days. The same goes for the bulls who are like our father because they are engaged in working the land. We show due respect for these sacred animals and never send them to slaughter. Their calves, too, are treated with compassion and allowed to stay peacefully with their mothers.
