Create an itinerary including Sanctuary Farm
Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. We have rescued thousands of animals and cared for them at our sanctuaries in Watkins Glen, New York; Northern California (Orland); and the Los Angeles area. At Farm Sanctuary, these animals are our friends, not our food. We educate millions of people about their plight and the effects of factory farming on our health and environment. We advocate for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion, and we reach out to legislators and businesses to bring about institutional reforms.

Farm Sanctuary is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. Please join us. A compassionate world begins with you!

  • We were given a thorough tour by Andrew. It began with a short introduction indoors which included a short video. Then we were taken to each of the barns and allowed to interact with the animals...

  • Our tour was great. We have been loyal Farm Sanctuary supporters for over 7 years and have always had the greatest experiences. We have made many friends over the years here, both animal and human...

  • Out of all the farm sanctuaries I have visited, the Watkins Glen Farm Sanctuary is by far the best. Not only do they do an immaculate job with their love, care and compassion for the animals but, they do a superb job with their advocacy during their tours. This is not a petting zoo. This is not a place to not take animal abuse seriously. Sanctuaries should be enjoyable yes but, also, educational. Some sanctuaries make their tours too playful. Yes, it should be fun for the family but, you should also walk away with new found knowledge that makes you think twice about the choices you make as opposed to saying comments about the chicken nuggets you like or the way you love your eggs to be cooked. Thank you Farm Sanctuary for being a true voice for animals and advocating for them like all sanctuaries should.
  • I loved the information about the cruelty of farm animals. I have watched many documentaries about the horrors I understand about plant based food and being vegan. What I don't understand is how eating processed plant based food helps our environment.
