Can I visit?
Yes, we have open farm days several times throughout the year. Check out our Events page on this website or on our Facebook page to find out when the next one will be. Keep in mind that the animals are all rescues and are here to live their lives in the most natural way possible for them. Some of them are very shy and with the exception of a few very affectionate cats and dogs, most of the animals will not come up for petting.
Why rescue farm animals?
In our society, most people have been raised to believe that the non-human animals we share our planet with are here to support the human animals, and that their lack of human-like intelligence gives us permission to use them in whatever role we feel appropriate. We arbitrarily place animals like cats, dogs, and horses in a “pet, not food” category, but place even more intelligent species like pigs and cows into a “use as we see fit” category. On our farm, and at other farm sanctuaries around the world, we seek to change these arbitrary beliefs by allowing people to see for themselves just how smart and worthy of their own lives ALL animals really are.
