Field Trips

You Can't Get Much More Socially Distant! :)

School looks very different this year. Getting unique and interesting experiences for your children is much harder.


We have designed a special field trip program for small groups that will give students of all ages a breath of fresh air and a smile that lasts all day!

Our two ponies are always happy to see new friends!


You will hear the donkeys before you see them; they love greeting people!

Our pigs wander around between the pens, making sure everyone is happy!

Our goats are well-mannered, especially if you have food for them!

Plenty of room to move

Our family-friendly farm has large, open areas where you can enjoy a walk and view the different animals. You can even lounge near our pond and watch the water life!

Covered Picnic Area

Get out of the sun and enjoy a quick snack or a full picnic lunch with our covered sitting area. We have tables and chairs available, or you can bring your own blankets and spread out on the green grass.

Safe Playground

Make sure your children get their energy out while you're here! We have a large, safe playground area for kids to spend time while you relax.

Food for the Animals

Let your children have a memorable experience! We have feed cups available for our tame and friendly goats and pigs. Be sure to take a picture to capture the moment!

Convenient and Quiet Location

We are located in beautiful Ford, Virginia. For many families, we are less than a 30 minute drive, making it easy to come out, have some fun, and still get home with time to spare.

The Details - How to Sign Up

Your visit to the farm includes a private tour and time with the animals! You can help us feed them or just hang out and pet a few of our friends. Every animal is happy to see you when you visit! This is an excellent opportunity to get your kids out of the house and do something different.


The cost of your visit is a tax-deductible donation of $30 for up to six people. We ask that there be at least one adult for every five children. We only allow twelve people to visit at any time in order to ensure proper social distancing measures can be followed.


Come on out and have a good time! Request a date and time to sign up. We will contact you with all of the information that you need to have a safe, enjoyable experience at Freckles & Friends Animal Sanctuary!


All visits are weather permitting. If necessary, we will work with you to reschedule your visit to another date and time.
