With Your Support We Are Working Hard To Get The Farm Open For The 2019 Tour Season

As always it takes a lot to keep over 100 animals fed, happy, and safe. With your support we have done a wonderful job in keeping things running smoothly over several generations.  Before we can open to the public this year we must get our steer Boo Boo’s fence repaired.   Every day we are getting closer to reaching our goal of raising what we need to complete the repairs. Please help us by donating HERE and once the fence is ready we will be setting up tours.  Please feel free to reach out to


What to expect when visiting Maple Farm Sanctuary

Other than amazing animal interactions like those shown in the video above, what can you expect on an MFS tour? Read about one supporter's experiences on an MFS tour!

An animal sanctuary can be a profound experience for many people. Interacting with animals typically seen as food can be life changing. Often visitors leave with a new perspective and respect for our animal friends. The sanctuary is quite different from a zoo. It is home for the animals, a place for them to feel safe and be cared for. We ask that all visitors treat the animals with respect and courtesy.

Please wear appropriate clothing for being outdoors and proper footwear for being among farm animals. The barn floors are cleaned daily, but the animals leave "presents" whenever they need to!

For the safety of our animals and yours, companion animals are not allowed at Maple Farm Sanctuary. Please do not leave companion animals inside your vehicle as temperatures can reach dangerous levels quickly, even with windows open.

Cancellation Policy

Public tours are held rain or shine! We rarely cancel a tour - only in the case of an extreme weather event. You will be notified by email if this occurs and can receive a refund or choose another tour date.
