5200 Escondido Canyon Rd.
Acton, CA 93510


  • Farm Sanctuary is open to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays. Guided tours are held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m., and the gift store will be open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.. These tours start promptly at the designated times. If you arrive late, we cannot guarantee a spot on the tour. Please plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to your tour. To visit with the animals, you do need to join a guided tour. Reservations are not required. On very rare occasions, we have to close unexpectedly on tour days. We highly recommend checking the status of the tour you wish to attend before you begin traveling to the sanctuary to ensure that we are open. To check the status, please call 661-269-5404 and press option 6. This information will be updated by 9:30 a.m. each tour-day morning reflecting the status of that date’s tours.
