What you'll do

Did you know that cows hold grudges, pigs can play video games, and turkeys recognize their favorite humans?

Join us on Zoom for a virtual visit to our sanctuary and meet a variety of rescued farm animals. We'll take you up close and personal with our animal residents, share their stories of resilience and healing, and talk a bit more about the industries they come from. You'll love meeting our animal ambassadors and may be surprised at what you learn since we so rarely see the animals in our food system. Join us as we get up close and personal with cows, pigs, turkeys, goats, sheep and more!

The Experience will last approximately 1 hour. Charlie's Acres is a 501c3 registered non-profit. All Experience proceeds go towards the care of our rescued animal residents.

Great for groups and team building!

We participated in the Charlie's Acres virtual experience as a work event. The entire team (including their children) had the best time. The hosts answered all questions, and shared stories that warmed our hearts. Highly recommend <3

The tour of Charlies Acres today put a huge smile on my face. Didn't expect the animals to have cute names and heartwarming stories that went with them.
