  • It is a perfect place to get away from the hustle and insanity of the world. There is so much love between the animals and staff. It's a great place to rest and recharge! Stay at the Homestead. There is nothing better than waking up to the sound of happy animals!
  • Attended the vegan cooking class. Absolutely the best food I've ever tried and such a fun experience. The Homestead is gorgeous also! I didn't get a chance to take a tour and meet the animals but I am looking forward to doing so next time. Will definitely be going back for more classes.
  • It was nice, saw a few animals they have but not all of them. And we got to pet maybe 3 species, a few goats, a chicken and a turkey. In the end the tour depended on animals approaching us.
  • My family and I have visited the CAS several times and have always had a great time on the tours seeing the animals and learning their stories. Yesterday I took my first class in their Compassionate Cuisine series- Life After Cheese. If you are a cheese nut as I am and want to find a substitute, TAKE THS CLASS. We sat down at a counter in the Homestead kitchen and enjoyed a "cheese" ball with crackers and fruit, wine, and veg/fruit infused water while we watched Chef Sara demonstrate and explain a number of recipes. After all was done we enjoyed a dinner with all that was made- pasta with cheddar sauce, caprese skewers, salad with feta, and eggplant lasagna with ricotta and walnut parmesan. I never knew learning to cook something could be so much fun.
  • One of the greatest experiences ever! Tour guides are knowledgeable and friendly. They don't pressure you into donating or anything but you'll definitely want to after meeting all the people and animals.
