Our residents love having visitors and we love the opportunity to help folks connect with them. We have a very small group of people doing A LOT of work to meet their needs and because of this, visits and tours are by appointment only. That is strongly enforced, and we ask that you please respect that. To schedule a visit or tour, please email us or send a text to get on the schedule.
Tour Ticket Pricing:
Ages 14 and up $20
Ages 5 - 13 $10
Ages 4 - under FREE
How To Schedule A Tour:
We strongly recommend booking your visit/tour at least 2 weeks in advance. Tours and visits are a source of income for the animals; because of this, there are no refunds on pre-paid tours, but you may reschedule with proper notice.
If you need to reschedule your tour, we ask that you reschedule with at least 48 hours notice and allow for another date at least 2 weeks out.
What To Expect:
Tours are roughly 1.5 hours long and you will get to meet many of our animals. You will get to go into their paddocks, interact with them, learn their unique stories, and see where they live. We can accommodate up to ten people at a time, carpooling is strongly encouraged due to limited parking. If you're interested in bringing a larger group, please reach out to us to coordinate.
This is a farm with many animals who LOVE people; you will likely get dirty. We recommend wearing clothes and shoes you do not mind getting dirt on. Closed-toe shoes are required. Depending on weather you may want to bring a hat, sunscreen, or bug spray. There is a portapotty and portable sink on site for guests to use. We also have hand sanitizer but ask that you bring your own wipes or paper towels if you really want to clean up before heading home.
The pigs and their friends enjoy romaine lettuce, carrots, bananas, apples, strawberries, bell peppers, all sorts of squashes, zucchini, sugar snap peas, melons, etc. They like almost everything but please, no peppers or onions! Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage are OK in moderation, but cause a lot of gas. Some very special treats that we give in moderation: animal crackers, cinnamon raisin bread, oatmeal cookies, oreos, cereal. You are welcome to bring some of their favorite snacks to donate towards the next snack time and you may even get to give a treat on your visit.
