We currently have three different types of tours:
Our public tour is held every Sunday at 11am and runs between 60-75 minutes. Both our private tour and cow hour are held Monday-Wednesday, with prebooking required. While it's not required that you prebook for public tours, it is highly recommended, so that in the event of last minute cancellation you will be notified (and reimbursed) before you make the drive here.
Public and Private Tours
Your tour will start with a brief introduction by your tour guide and then you'll walk to where the cows are grazing. You'll be up close and personal with our big grass puppies and hear some of their stories. Get ready to pet and possibly hug at least one cow, as many of our cows love human interaction.
After visiting the cows, we'll walk down to the lower barnyard, where you'll have the opportunity to meet Lucky, Anchi, Jess, Hannah, Oliver and Sophie- six BIG pigs (over 600 lbs of pure sweetness) rescued from an Oahu backyard pig farm and then flown to the Big Island in a joint rescue with Aloha Animal Sanctuary.
Once in the lower barnyard, you'll also meet our Polynesian and potbellied pigs, have the opportunity to pet and brush those who want to interact, and maybe even give a few of them a belly rub! The lower barnyard is also home to over 30 chickens and three beautiful turkeys.
Depending on where they're grazing, you might just run into some of our super friendly goats and sheep, too!
Private tours are the same itinerary as pubic tours, they're just more intimate and participants can spend more time in specific areas.
60-minutes of pure bliss with our cows. Pet, brush, and hug many of our cows while learning their story. This is an experience you won't soon forget!
Because this is a sanctuary, not a petting zoo, there is no guarantee that you’ll get to hold or pet the animals. No one is bribed with treats nor enclosed in a manner that would prevent them from walking away should they choose to do so. However, it is very likely that you'll have the opportunity as we have pigs who love their bellies rubbed, goats and sheep who love to be pet and brushed, and several cows who will be up for some pets and hugs.
