Needs to be updated...Not clean at all. What do they do with those animals in the winter when it is below 0?

After reading a news article from a local paper, I decided to stop by. This is a great stop for people of all ages who like to interact with various types of animals. It isn't very big but was worth the drive. They have goats, deer, rabbits, horses, llamas, pigs and various species of birds. Additionally, injured, abused and abandoned animals have a forever home here. If you wish to feed them the animals, you can purchase some the feed that they offer or you can call ahead to see what kind of food you can bring. In some cases, they will let you into some of their pens but you will need to call ahead to arrange that. For my trip, I brought a big bag of carrots, a couple quarts of blueberries and a quart of strawberries. I fed goats, rabbits, horses and deer. When I fed the deer, I was able to go into the pen and hand feed them. When the deer saw the bag, they surrounded me. It was surreal but very gratifying. The goats were very gentle eating out of my hand. Also, you'll see that the caretakers have a strong bond with their friends. Each of them has a name and when they are called out, they come to the fence. You can tell that really love their friends. They don't charge anything to visit. They run this place with their own money including the feed and medical expenses. Fortunately, I was able to spare some of my travel money to assist them. They were very, very thankful.

Free admission. You may donate if you want, but not required. It is a self-paced walking tour. You can get close to the animals.

This is a nice refuge for rescue animals. The feed you purchase to feed the many different animals is a good portion for the price. Children love to spend time here. Staff is very caring. Donations are always accepted to help care for the animals. I brought some good extra hay as a donation.

We were visiting on the UP and stumbled upon this little gem! This is a wonderful rescue facility that runs solely on donations. Small and well maintained. The animals are well cared for and friendly. There is an obvious good rapport between the owners and the animals they care for. The owner gives you a private tour and explains how each animal came to be there. We asked several questions and were amazed at the stories behind each of the animals. There are quite a variety from bunnies to emus and exotic birds; horses, goats, sheep, lamas, pigs, deer...you name it and they will rescue it if possible. The animals are so secure there that babies are being born! My 19 month old granddaughter had so very much fun. There are food dispensers for a small charge and the animals will eat out of your hands.I highly recommend this facility and encourage all who visit to support such a great cause. There are donation boxed placed around the paths. This place is always open, seven days a week all year long.There are great pictures on their Facebook page and TripAdvisor sites.
