Cranky’s FARM Guided Visit (AM) – 17 April 2022
April 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$1.00 – $20.00
Visit all the residents and crew at Cranky’s FARM.
Our sanctuary is located on 60 amazingly, beautiful acres atop Mount Mee and is currently home to 48 farm animals rescued from various situations including abandonment, neglect, and imminent death.
During a visit to Cranky’s FARM you will be able to walk the property, meet and interact with all the residents and hear their stories.
We have opened Cranky’s FARM up to visitors for two main reasons:
- Fund raising – it costs a LOT to feed and provide everything required to keep out current 48 residents happy and healthy. We receive no government funding or grants and rely solely on the generosity, compassion and support of donors who care about and want to help provide our residents with a chance to live their best lives. That is why to visit Cranky’s FARM we ask for a $20 donation per adult and $10 donation per child.
- Education – we encourage everyone who visits Cranky’s FARM who is vegan to bring along at least one person who has not quite made the connection between who is on their plate and the living, thinking, feeling individuals they once were. We believe that by connecting with our residents, people’s hearts and minds can be opened to, what is obvious to us; that sentient beings are not food for humans.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT VISITING CRANKY’S FARM:
- It is a legal requirement that every person, regardless of age, visiting Cranky’s FARM to have a ticket.
- We limit our visits to 10 people to reduce the impact visits have on the residents and to optimise the amount of personal time visitors get to spend with the residents.
- The property is the resident’s home. They are free and roam the premises.
- IMPORTANT: Cranky’s FARM runs entirely on tank water. As water is limited it would be appreciated, if required, that you make your toilet stop before arriving at the sanctuary. There is a public toilet approx. 300 meters (5 min walk) up the road at the Mt Mee Lookout.
