Adopt an Animal

Spotlight image: Adopt an Animal

Anyone can adopt an animal at The Farm and become its "parent." As an adoptive parent, you are helping to provide for the food and care of your animal. Of course, your adopted animal stays at The Farm where it is cared for by Farm staff. Note: for all practical purposes, some of the animals are sold when they reach maturity. It's easy to adopt! Choose your favorite farm animal and adopt it for a year by making a tax-deductible donation. A farm "parent" receives an adoption certificate, his/her name listed at The Farm, and a poster as a "thank you," because we do appreciate your support. All adoptive parents will be invited to Santa on the Farm at The Farm in December.

Call us at 970.221.6665 for more information or to adopt today!
