I went to farm Sanctuary to celebrate my B-day. I am a vegan and a tireless animal lover, but this place is for anyone to enjoy. It is extraordinarily beautiful. The farm is located in a huge acreage of farm and the proceeds go to sustain their cause which is saving animals from an unnecessary suffering. Is a visit that... More

We thoroughly love visiting and supporting Farm Sanctuary every time we are in the Watkins Glen area (and from afar via donations and purchases). If you are an animal lover or simply don't suffer allergic reactions to compassion, you'll love every second of your visit. :) Try to plan a tour in advance, as hearing the stories of the animals...

I came here with a boyfriend as I have wanted to visit for years. I have done walks for the sanctuary and met Gene Baur (founder) multiple times over the years but had never visited. I finally got to meet many of the animals, pet cows pigs goats turkeys, and feed turkeys grass. I loved it so much that although... More

Farm Sanctuary is a place that is doing amazing work. It is a place I highly recommend visiting. You will enjoy yourself among lots of charming farm animals while also being in a stunningly beautiful retreat. Sonia Faruqi, author of Project Animal Farm

I knew I wanted to take an off-the-beaten path, Fall vacation, and bring my dog, and be around animals, and I supported the Farm Sanctuary cause, but I had no idea how wonderful the accommodations would be and how peaceful and memorable the whole experience would turn out. If you go, stay in one of the new Tiny Houses. Amy's... More

My husband and I stayed with our 2 dogs in one of the pet friendly cabins. The cabin was spacious, clean and cozy. Although our dogs were not permitted on the farm tour (many of the rescued farm animals are stressed around dogs), we were able to leave them in the cabin while we toured the grounds. Our guide was... More

If you love animals and have compassion for them, Farm Sanctuary is already likely known to you. But if you additionally wish to exist briefly among them (literally, stay on the land) AND rest in comfortable, clean, eco accommodations with your own small kitchen and washer/dryer unit, I highly recommend renting one of their "tiny houses." In the morning you... More

Very well run tour If you are thinking about going vegan this may urge you on. Up close the with big piggies, goats, sheep, cows, turkeys, chickens. This organization endorses a vegan diet because there are no guarantees that any Farm raised animals are treated humanely. However, I thought that they kept it fairly simple without preaching.

My daughter and I came to see the farm after reading about it. We spent the night in Angie's cabin which was roomier than expected and quit nice. The only drawback is there is no plumbing so you must use the bathrooms at the visitor center. I was hesitant but found this to be very easy after all. It was... More

The sanctuary experience was certainly worth the time. There is a 5 minute video before the tour showing the way animals are raised and harvested by big farms & companies. They have exhibits showing the animals' poor living arrangements and pre and post rescue pictures. I knew about this already, but it was great for kids to see because it... More
