Begin With Joy 

Joy, hope, kindness and compassion are always at the forefront of our thinking at the Sanctuary. By working together with the community on topics such as compassionate farmed animal care, sustainable organic farming practices, the power of kindness, and the value of volunteerism, we seek positive changes for animals and people alike. 


Unity Farm Sanctuary formally began in December 2016. Residents here include alpaca, llamas, horses, ponies, miniature horses, sheep, cows, goats, pigs and a vast array of feathered friends. We cannot rescue every surrender request: so we network with the community and other vegan organizations to help as many farm animals as possible find loving, lifelong homes.

Working toward a positive future, we host Sanctuary Tours, humane educational workshops, wellness and creativity retreats, and are particularly proud of volunteer opportunities for adults, and students as young as 10 accompanied by an adult. Please do not bring any food products derived from animals onto the Sanctuary grounds (ie. flesh/dairy), and we hope you consider the impact of fur, down and leather on the animals and the environment before purchasing and wearing those.


The Sanctuary in bucolic wooded Sherborn MA is located minutes from Boston on the Mass Pike exit in Natick, yet is worlds away from urban life. Visitors are encouraged to walk our forest trails that connect with the Bay Circuit Trail, and are open dawn to dusk. Click here to download the trail map created by Volunteer Samaera Ebinger.


For the safety of both our animal residents and our visitors, the rescues' area is closed to drop-in visits, so unscheduled drop-in walking through the animal care zone is not permitted for the safety of both the animals and the visitors (you can become a volunteer or come on a guided tour!)

Unity Farm Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) farmed animal sanctuary. The mission of Unity Farm Sanctuary is to provide a safe and loving lifelong home for farmed animals, to offer the public unique educational programs, and to promote a culture of kindness and connection. We support the entire New England community with numerous programs that are constantly expanding. Sanctuary virtual programs reach far beyond the region. Our goal is to make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of animals, people and the world around us.
