I volunteered for a few hours while on vacation. The staff is doing a wonderful job caring for the animals, and providing a loving, safe home. I really applaud them.

Our family had mixed reviews. My husband and older son didn't appreciate the focus on being a vegan. My younger son and I loved how close we were able to get with the animals during the tour. I enjoyed a different perspective on eating meat.

I visited quite awhile ago, but there were plenty of animals to see. This is great for younger kids looking to learn more about the various kinds of animals!

Very informative and kids loved being able to pet cows, feed turkeys, pet pigs and goats. Great time for all! Liked how they explained how the animals were rescued. It made the kids think twice about eating plant based diets.
