Fraternize with friendly farm animals, sip sweet cider, and shop for hand-crafted gifts in our Holiday Gift Shoppe! Please come and visit the farm! Every Saturday from 10-4 starting December 2 until December 23.
Our 2018 Calendar is here! This full-color, 17″ x 11″ wall calendar features 13 of our beautiful animals, and all sales go to benefit the sanctuary. Calendars can be purchased at the farm or mailed directly to you. Each month features a different animal at our sanctuary.
The cost is $20 per calendar (or $22 with shipping). [Order now!]
At our July Farm Tour, we held an animal sponsorship challenge: to try to get every single animal on the farm with a sponsorship from someone special. Thank you so much to those who chose your special guy or gal! We are posting the unclaimed sponsorships on our Facebook page daily, but you can catch up here to see who still needs a sponsor!
Every summer the Montgomery County Farm Tour brings hundreds of visitors to our farm. There are so many poignant moments, when people connect with animals in sometimes unexpected ways. It’s a beautiful (but hot!) event. [view the slideshow!]
Old Vinnie is a gentle soul. He is an Angora goat who has been passed from one home to another. This is confusing to animals. We are so glad to provide Vinnie with a permanent home. He is in need of some special care; he came here very thin and with parasites, so we are giving him the royal treatment. [read more about Vinnie]
Workdays are held every Saturday from 9am to 1pm, year-round, rain or shine. Volunteers wishing to come need to let us know by the Friday morning beforehand by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers must have completed orientation and filled out paperwork before arriving to volunteer.
Our next volunteer orientation will be held on September 16 from 1-2 pm. Please RSVP if you wish to attend.
