They arrive with us in a damaged state. We restore their life to them. We made a promise to our animals that Manor Orchard Farm would be their everlasting home, and we intend to uphold that promise.
Established over 30 years ago, The Farm Animal Sanctuary was the first of its kind in this country. We provide a safe haven for neglected and abused farm animals where they can live out the rest of their lives in comfort while receiving the special care and attention they need. The sanctuary was founded by Jan Taylor, after she witnessed the horrific reality of livestock markets around the country selling sick, malnourished, and frightened animals that were facing certain death or a lifetime of misery. Today we have over 600 happy residents, including sheep, cattle, pigs, ponies and horses, cats, dogs, ducks, geese, hens and cockerels, turkeys and alpacas! Our vital work would not be possible without your help. We welcome support through sponsorship, events, farm visit and donations. To find out how you can get involved, please read on.
We have a number of events throughout the year. Everything from the perfect day trip to seasonal fun. Take a look and book today!
There are any many ways in which you can support us to provide the care, shelter, space and veterinary attention our animals need. All donations, no matter how small, go straight back into running our sanctuary. Get involved with our seasonal events or sponsor an animal – the perfect gift for animal lovers.
