July 2 & 3 - Help Us Build Fences!

We're excited to announce that the Gentle Barn is here to renovate Maple Farm Sanctuary—and we need your help too!

This weekend we have a big job ahead of us, as we plan to update fencing all around the property in order to keep our animals safe and give them more room to roam. We're seeking volunteers to help put up fencing between 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday, July 2-3.

If you can make it, there is no need to email. Just come on by, and please remember to wear sunscreen and closed toe shoes. All volunteers are welcome as there is plenty to do even if you are not able to assist with fencing.

Thank you for your continued support for animals, and we hope to see you this weekend!

Ongoing - Sanctuary Tours


Group public tours are held rain or shine! Current tour dates are posted below. A $12 minimum donation per person is requested and can be given at the beginning of your tour, kids under twelve are $8 and babies under one are free.

Email to reserve space on an upcoming tour. Be sure to let us know how many spaces you need. There are a limited number of spaces for each tour, and each tour usually becomes fully booked a few weeks in advance. If we have reserved space for you, it is important that you show up. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend. This will allow other guests to take your place.

We rarely cancel a tour - only in the case of an extreme weather event. You will be notified by email if this occurs.

Upcoming Tour Dates

All of our scheduled tour dates are now SOLD OUT! Due to major renovations, we will not be scheduling any more tour dates for this summer. Please check back with us this fall to see when our tours will start up again. Thank you for a great tour season!

Important Note: For the safety of the public and our animal residents, we do not allow walk-in visitors. All visitors to the sanctuary must register for a public, group or private tour in advance. Thank you for your understanding.
