Det skal I lave

Visitors to the sanctuary get to meet all of the animals. We take a walk through their habitats and talk about where they came from, what hardships they have faced and how they have overcome them. Some of the animals get snacks during the tour, other animals prefer to get pets instead, while others might prefer a different activity.

During the tour we meet and interact with pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, special needs animals and sometimes the sanctuary dogs.

The sanctuary is home to 16 pigs of all sizes. You will meet big 600lbs pigs, little 100lbs pigs, naked pigs, pigs who love belly rubs and more.

We also visit the rescued hens and turkeys who love to flock around your feet and ask for their favorite treats.

Other things to note
Wear appropriate shoes and clothing. Boots or waterproof shoes are recommended. During the summer sneakers are good too. Please do not wear high heels or clothes you would hate to get dirty.

I have been working in animal welfare and research for over 10 years. In 2017 I left my career as a college science instructor to cofound a farm animal rescue which came to be known as Heartwood Haven. We have rescued over 1000 farm animals ranging from chickens to goats to pigs and even special needs animals. All animals here are rescued and living their best lives here at the sanctuary.

Had a great time learning about all the animals. Their stories really make you think more deeply into farmland rescues and just how much help they really need! Thank you Kate for all the knowledge

Must do experience!! My daughter and I have been following Heartwood Haven on Facebook for a while and it was wonderful to have the tour to meet some of the animals up close. Kate does a beautiful job of conducting the tour and it was extremely informative. All of the tour fee goes to support the sanctuary and towards enabling them to rescue more farm animals. We were so grateful to have this opportunity. Thank you!

Such an awesome experience overall! Kate was very friendly and informative. Answered everyone’s questions. Everyone could see the love and care she puts towards caring for all the animals and this business. The pigs were my favorite! Bring veggies for the animals to eat, they truly enjoy it. I’ll definitely be recommending this to family and friends. Just be sure to wear boots and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. And if you plan on petting the animals, definitely bring sanitizing hand wipes to clean your hands at the end.

This was a very meaningful and fun experience for the whole family. More than just a closeup, hands on activity (meaning petting, and we did have plenty of that) the host provided meaningful and well articulated commentary not just on the backstory of individual animals but stories that also opened my eyes to the plight of abused “farm animals” ( roosters subjected to cock fighting, pigs kept as pets but abused, etc.) and the vital and under resourced services that organizations like this that rescue these animals serve.

Kate provided an inside look into the lives of forgotten and abused animals, otherwise known as livestock. We got to spend time with the resident pigs, ducks, turkeys, and chickens. It was an enlightening experience and one that we will remember.
