Our 336 acre preserved sanctuary is equipped with beautifully maintained barns, stables, fenced-in pastures and hay fields where visitors can walk the grounds and enjoy the natural setting and beautiful views.
A charming colonial-era bed and breakfast overlooks the entire site. One of the barns has been converted into our visitor and educational center.
Our sanctuary is home to over two hundred animals including goats, chickens, cows, sheep, horses, rabbits, pigs, ducks and turkeys. Our animals love spending time with human visitors.
We will create wildlife habitats for animals in danger, bring back native species of plants and create sanctuary space for pollinators in need, such as the monarch butterfly.
Our education programs are geared towards a broad audience. We are bringing together nature conservationists and animal protectors in a full circle of care and respect for all.
We host parties and events year round on the property.
We are preparing for the build out of our new animal hospital, art gallery/event space and education center.
