Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary is located in the picturesque Worcestershire countryside within easy reach of Shropshire and the West Midlands. Our tranquil 92-acre site is home to over 300 rescued animals including sheep, pigs, goats, chickens and even two alpacas!
If you’re looking for things to do near you, then a visit to our sanctuary is an unforgettable experience and a chance to connect with our rescued animals, learn all about their inspiring stories, and find our more about how we care for them.
There are a few different ways you can visit us:
For the full Goodheart experience, book on to a guided tour of our sanctuary site, where you’ll be shown around our habitat development projects and get the chance to meet the many colourful characters who call Goodheart home.
This unique hands-on experience allows visitors to get up close and personal with our group of friendly rescued pigs and learn all about their lives, personalities, and what it takes to care for them. You can then enjoy your lunch beside our grassy paddocks, while the pigs enjoy theirs!
This October, we’re offering children aged between 7 and 10 the opportunity to be an animal carer for the day, here at our animal sanctuary.
They’ll learn all about our animals and what it takes to care for them, make some fun enrichment toys and get stuck in helping with our chickens, sheep and pigs, guided by our Visitor & Education Manager Abby.
We are able to host educational trips for Primary, Secondary and Special Education schools, as well as community groups. Follow the link below to find out more about visiting us in an educational capacity.
Can you accommodate larger groups?
Smaller group visits are better for the animals themselves, as they can become scared and stressed when surrounded by a large number of people. We also feel that a smaller group size allows for a more personal experience, giving you chance to ask lots of questions about the animals and hear their individual stories.
What are the sanctuary opening times?
Our sanctuary is only ‘open’ for pre-booked tours and experiences and we cannot accept walk-ins.
Are dogs allowed on site?
To prevent our farm animals becoming stressed, we only allow Service Dogs on site during Sanctuary Visits.
Do you have a sanctuary cafe?
We only provide tea and coffee (with plant-based milk) as part of our Sanctuary Visits. If you’re looking to enjoy some delicious vegan food while in the area, we would recommend Be the Change Foods in Worcester.
