ON-SITE & VIRTUAL TOURS

Unity Farm Sanctuary is thrilled to reopen to the public with Covid-19-adapted tours throughout Summer and Fall 2020. If you are unable to visit in person, we also offer virtual tours and cameos. Please browse our offerings below and register for an available date!

 

For the safety of our animal residents and our visitors, we are a closed farm, so unscheduled drop-ins are not allowed.

Celebration of the Turkeys

Join us for a brisk mid-autumn walk through the sanctuary to meet and honor our beloved turkeys! We will learn about their different breeds, unique personalities, and hear about their plights. We will also get a chance to offer them up a bit of food and loving attention --- and take a moment to recognize their beauty and innate worth, especially before Thanksliving. The tour runs for about an hour and includes a brief overview of our other animal residents. Our Unity Duck Haven Store will also be open 12-4 pm for some special holiday shopping. 

Tickets are a $10.00 donation.*

(Free for children 2 and under)

Winter Solstice Tour

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 a bit of winter-themed poetry. The tour runs for about an hour. Our Unity Duck Haven Store will also be open 12-4pm for some special holiday shopping.

Tickets are a $10.00 donation.*

(Free for children 2 and under)

Let's Go Veg! Tours

A brand-new tour aimed at anyone (ages 10+) who is considering a more plant-based life. Meet our animals, hear their stories, and learn what positive, incremental changes we can all make to lead more compassionate lives. Whether you're already on a path toward vegetarianism or veganism or have no idea how to get started, everyone is welcome! All visitors will receive a goody bag of vegan treats and tips to help jumpstart their journey! These tours run for approximately 75 minutes.

Tickets cost $15.00 for all visitors.*

Private Tours & Field Trips

If you would like to schedule a private tour for your school group, organization, or company, we can work with you to design a tour that best meets your needs!

Please get in touch with our Humane Education team so we can discuss your needs and plan your visit!

Virtual Tours/Cameos

We are currently offering virtual tours to groups of any age from anywhere! If you would like to schedule a private tour or animal cameo for your school group, organization, or company, get in touch with our Humane Education team to discuss how we can best meet your needs.

 

Most tours and cameos run from 10-60 minutes over Zoom.

 

At this time, we are happy to be able to offer our tours at no cost to all public schools and non-profits, and by donation for other groups.

Pumpkin Tours

Our special fall harvest "Pumpkin Tours" run from October to early November. Join us for a fun, 1-hour guided tour, where you will visit with our 250 rescued farm animal residents, hear about some of their journeys, and learn about the ways they adapt to the changing seasons. Pumpkin Tours differ from our General Sanctuary Tours, so repeat visitors will have much to enjoy. All ticket holders will receive 10% off in our Unity Duck Haven Store.

These tours also include special feeding of seasonal treats (including pumpkins!) for some of our animal residents -- thanks to the generosity of our friends at Volante Farms in Needham!

Tickets are free for children 2 & under and cost $10 for all other visitors.*

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.
