Guests will arrive at the micro sanctuary and I will introduce them to the animals in the small animal enclosure and the large animal enclosure. The guests can spend time in the enclosures petting, brushing, and feeding the animals - some are shy, but others are pretty friendly. The goats also like to show off their jumping skills! We can also take the goats and lambs out to graze and relax in the yard for a few minutes. The sanctuary visit is a simple experience...nothing fancy...just come connect with our animals and feed them some treats :) Your visit can be as long or short as you like.
I grew up in Nelson on a small hobby farm. My love for animals has led me to rescue rabbits, lambs and goats. This year I opened Rixen Creek Micro Farm Sanctuary! Since we just opened we only have a few animals ( 2 goat kids, 2 lambs, and 2 rabbits) Next year we expect to expand but for now its just our 6 animals. I want to offer an experience for people to connect with these animals and get to know them. This is a fantastic kids experience and is geared toward children although adults can participate as well. Just a note: 100% of the money raised from offering this experience goes toward animal feed and care.
Our sanctuary is 10 minutes drive west of Nelson. We'll visit the big animal enclosure with goats and lambs and the small animal enclosure rabbits. Perhaps relax in the yard and let the goats graze. These enclosures are on my beautiful 2 acre property of forest, yard and gardens.
