How to Schedule a Family/Couple/Individual Tour
Reservations are required. Please call 541.899.8627 or send us an email (info@SanctuaryOne.org) to book a tour.
We conduct tours for families, couples, and individuals on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The tour starts at 10:30 am and typically takes about 90 minutes. During the tour, a staff member or volunteer will guide you around the farm, explain how a care farm works, and answer your questions. The tour also includes a chance to meet the Sanctuary's herd of rescued farm animals and house pets.
We ask for a minimum donation of $10 per person. Checks are the preferred method of donating. We also accept cash. Donations via credit card may be made on our website's Support page.
If you make a reservation but your plans change and you cannot keep the appointment, please call 541.899.8627 or send us an email (info@SanctuaryOne.org) to let us know. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
