Event Description
Event hosted by Farm Animal Rescue. This is a paid event.

Farm Animal Rescue is a completely free-roaming facility. We don't pen or yard the animals here, they live completely free. So we will walk around the paddocks and forests to find them and spend some time.

Then you can meet the chickens, goats, sheep, cows, pigs and other happy animals who have a forever home at the Farm Animal Rescue sanctuary where animals run free over 55 acres of hills, forests and fields.

Booking a tour on a Farm Animal Rescue Open Day is a great way to meet animals that have been rescued from the agriculture industry, hear their stories, and spend some time with our amazing residents.

•Bookings are made for a specific tour departure time.
•Our Walking Safaris will depart the visitor area promptly and take around 90 minutes. Guests must be accompanied by a guide when visiting the animals. There are steep hills at the sanctuary and there is a significant amount of walking involved.
•children under 15 must be supervised at all times as animals are free-ranging
•visitors wishing to see the cattle and pigs are required to navigate a steep path
