Public tours of the sanctuary are offered on Saturday afternoons. The first tour starts at 1 pm, and a second tour may be added at 2:30 if the first fills up. Public tours are one hour long and are for ages 5 and up. The fee is $12/person and all guests (including kids 5 and older) must be registered one at a time. During the months of May-October, our public tour fee increases to $15/person.
All guests must sign our visitor waiver before arriving at the sanctuary (parents sign on behalf of their children). Find the waiver here. Please note that public tours are 60 minutes long and involve a lot of walking, talking and manure. 🙂 We want everyone to have a fun, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting the sanctuary, and we’ve found that children do best with appropriate adult support.
Heartland Farm Sanctuary’s private tours give you a behind-the-scenes look at sanctuary life.

Our private tour fees are dependent on the number of people in your party, and the time of year you schedule your tour. Fees are as follows:
