Visit by Appointment only

We are always happy to welcome guests to the sanctuary and the animals love meeting new friends.  However, we do have some rules to follow so you and the animals stay safe. 

  • Contact us one week in advance.  Click Here to start your visit. 
  • We request the following donations per visit:
    • $20 per adult
    • $10 per senior/veteran
    • $5 per child
  • Wear appropriate clothing: boots, or closed-toe shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy – or poopy; also pigs love to nibble on toes. 
  • Be prepared to walk; the sanctuary is big and you will walk a lot. 
  • Tours are typically 1 hour to a max of 2 hours. Time can be adjusted for the elderly or those with special needs. 
  • Be prepared to be outdoors, wear sunscreen, and bring bottled water.
  • All ages can visit however, children must be with an adult at all times.  
  • Our animals are very friendly and sometimes they get excited which can be scary to some kids. 

Some Areas Are Wheelchair accessible.

As we are essentially an outdoor sanctuary, we have some crushed shell pathways or areas a typical wheelchair can use. You can get close to most pastures from our main driveway and meet animals. Because pigs like to poop everywhere your wheels may run into poop. 

Can We bring treats for the animals?

You can bring fresh organic carrots or unshelled and unsalted peanuts. Our animals are on very specific diets and types of foods, so anything you bring will be fed to the animals during their normal feeding times. We don’t allow direct feeding because of the chaos that ensues. 

Are the animals dangerous?

No, but they are very large and can overwhelm most people if you get too close.  

Can we pet the animals?

Yes, but do it kindly.  Our animals know they are safe and they love humans.  But they do get scared so be kind and hug wisely. 


We are open to the public by appointment only. Please request a visit here

Can I bring my dog?

While we would love to meet your dog, some of our animals may be scared of them.  So no dogs, cats, Peacocks, Wolves, Coyotes, and absolute no bears allowed.   

Can I host a party or event at the sanctuary?
