Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue is home to many rescued, exploited and abused animals. They have turkeys, cows, sheep, chickens, pigs, and goats. They offer tours on Saturdays and Sundays - weather permitting, so it's good to check their social media pages before making the trip. The tours start at 11 am and 2 pm, and are roughly an hour long. You are taken around the farm and get the chance to meet various residents. You will have the opportunity to interact, pet, and take pictures with the animals. The current stars of the show are a mother/daughter duo named Brianna and Winter. Brianna escaped from a truck headed to the slaughterhouse while heavily pregnant with Winter. Two days after she arrived at Skylands, she gave birth. They are lovely, every animal who lives here is. You will get to see their individual personalities. It is a very informative tour. You will also gain first-hand knowledge on current agricultural practices that the industries like to hide. You will realize how lucky these beings are, they survived the odds out of the 56 billion a year that do not.

With 232 acres and 250 or so animals, you would think that you would need a full day to see and hear everything. Wrong! We took the 2 P.M. one hour plus tour led by Mary & Grace. These two young ladies are incredibly well informed and passionate about what they do. They are full-time workers who know these animals (chickens, roosters, turkeys, cows, goats, pigs, etc.) inside and out and refer to them as their kids! The animals are human-friendly. You can pet them, walk with them, talk to them, and they might even pose for pictures, but feeding them is not allowed. Take the kids for this hands-on experience. Donations are requested in lieu off admission fees. After hearing Mary & Grace's rescue stories you may want to go vegan. Can't wait to bring the grandkids! Thanks ladies for a great afternoon.

Thank you so much to Mike and Mary for being so kind! The farm will be starting hayrides soon, where people will be able to see the animals in the field, but make sure to call in advance and check availability. The views are spectacular and the animals are super friendly.

VEGANS: there's a great pizza place just down the road a bit that serves vegan pizza, stromboli and ravioli!!!!!
