Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary, Norton
(4.3/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
Winslow Farm Animal Awareness is a non-profit charitable organization devoted to the rescue and care of abandoned and mistreated animals. Established in 1996, Winslow Farm exists for one purpose: to provide love and care to the many animals without a home or for those that have been abused and/or neglected by their previous owners. A sanctuary where animals can learn to trust humans once again.

In the fall of 1997, Winslow Farm opened it's doors to the public as a petting farm, offering the public an opportunity to meet and interact with the 183 animals that live on the farm. In addition to an animal sanctuary, Winslow Farm offers a variety of animal-oriented activities including birthday parties for children, pony rides, group educational tours, nature hikes and trails, as well as special events occurring during the holiday seasons. These activities serve to educate the public about neglected, abused, and abandoned animals, general animal care, and allows animals the exposure to a population of "good" humans that these animals can learn to trust.

Winslow Farm offers a tranquil setting, either by the campfire or by the Meadow Brook Pond for reflecting, writing, meditating and enjoying nature, in addition to the opportunity to visit and interact with the over 200 animals at Winslow Farm.

  • Ok, so I get and appreciate the whole "rescued animal thing" and maybe we went on a bad day but there wasn't much to see for the price we paid. I know the money goes toward the animals but I thought i...  more »

  • Just wonderful. It's so magical in there. The gardens are beautiful, the animals seem happy and I love that many of them can interact with each other. There are some really friendly critters too, some that just walk up to you and others that will come over with a bit of coaxing. They're doing a great job. Keep it up and support this little sanctuary! (definitely going back :) )
  • Amazing place for animals! You feel a great connection between them and unike a zoo you know they are happy. Will definitely visit again.
  • Nice place with lots of cute and friendly animals. Wear boots or something tho cause you will get poop stuck on your shoes.
  • Good job. You can walk free with the animals. Some come right up others let you know to stay back. Nice people there. Well worth the trip
  • I placed a call to Winslow Farm on 6/17/16 to ask if I could tour the facility to see if it would be a good fit for any of the Adults in the Employment program I work at to volunteer. As soon as they heard "disability" I was rudely shut down and did not even get to ask for the tour. I was told they would be at risk of being "kicked by a horse" ...doesn't everybody have that risk working on a farm? Do you really think I would put any of my people in a situation that would harm them? This would be why I wanted to ask for a tour. Ohh and worried about law suits had you taken a moment to listen we are fully insured! We are an employment program, we train people to be gainfully employed, our people have many talents and because of closed minded people like the one I spoke with many will work to levels you will never see from someone without a disability. Believe me Winslow.... this was your loss! Extremely disappointed that at this day and age people are so closed minded and cruel.
