Time & Location
Dec 18, 2021, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Unity Farm Sanctuary, 17 Unity Ln, Sherborn, MA 01770, USA
Celebrate the change of the season and the arrival of Winter Solstice with a lovely walk through the sanctuary. While we are out and about, we will check in on our animal residents and share winter-themed sotries. The tour runs for about an hour. Our Unity Duck Haven Store will also be open for some special holiday shopping for fun Sanctuary themed items. (if you purchase online before arrival, your order will be ready when you are onsite)
Tours are suitable for all ages and consist of a 1-hour+ guided walk through our beautiful property. You will have the chance to meet our 225+ rescued farm animal residents and learn more about their stories, reflecting the diverse plights of farm animals worldwide. We spend time talking about how winter brings changes to the animals. Get to know their unique personalities and see the transformative power of love, care, and kindness firsthand!
Our Winter Solstice Tours differ from our General Sanctuary Tours, so repeat visitors will have much to enjoy! Please dress appropriately for the weather, including warm and waterproof, non-slip boots. We will only cancel if severe weather is expected or there is significant slippery ice.
Tickets are free for children age 3 and under and have a $10.00 donation each for all other visitors age 4 and up. Unity is a 501(c)(3) public charity operating on the kindness and generosity of so many. Your ticket donation goes directly to the care of our animal residents. Anyone needing financial assistance is invited to email us at email@example.com.
Additional donations are always welcome and appreciated and can be made on our website or in person.
