My daughter and I visited he Farm Sanctuary recently. It was a wonderful experience. The staff were very knowledgeable, professional and engaging. It was a gentle learning environment without aggressive tactics or money grabbing. In fact I think they could easily raise their entrance fees.

If I stay in one of the cabins on the property (I realized they are fully booked for this year) will I have opportunities to interact with the animals aside from the tour, or only on the tour? Thank you.

Additionally, please note that if you are a B&B guest you can wander around the sanctuary after tours and observe the animals from outside the enclosures. Thank you for asking and we look forward to seeing you soon!
