Public Barn Tours

Public Tours Picture Important Note: We have recently switched to an online waiver system! Prior to coming to our sanctuary for a tour, please fill out our online waiver. Thank you!

Public tours are a great way to learn more about Heartland and meet our rescued farm animal residents! Tours are approximately 75 minutes long and the fee is $12 per person (kids 1 and under are free). If you’re looking for a more kid-friendly option for the younger ones, please check out our Open Barns! Open Barn dates are listed on the tour registration page. Unlike our structured public tours, Open Barns allow you to drop in at the sanctuary anytime during the hours listed to visit and spend time with your favorite animal groups. You can stay the full two hours, or 15 minutes! It’s up to you.

Register here!

Registration for both public tours and Open Barns is required, and for animal safety reasons, drop-ins are not permitted. Click here to register.

Please arrive on time for the tour you wish to attend as tours begin promptly at the time listed. The barn is located at 11713 Mid Town Road in Verona, WI. All food and snacks should be left in your vehicle. Tours are held rain or shine!

Heartland offers $5 barn tours for Veterans and their family members. Please RSVP for the tour of your choice by emailing

Also, please note that Heartland staff has the right and responsibility to keep our sanctuary residents safe. Tour guests displaying inappropriate or unsafe behavior may be asked to leave the sanctuary.
