We went there last year with some friends who had invited us. We were very impressed by the quality of care that is given to the animals, the dedication of the volunteers and the cleanliness and happiness of the place. It was a beautiful experience. This is a non-profit that we whole heartedly support.

I was recently involved in a volunteer project for this organization. It was an amazing experience! The sanctuary is a wonderful, serene, loving place. The animals are all so well taken care of. It is obvious how much love and attention each animal receives and that those who are caring for the animals truly believe it is their life work to protect and nurture each one of them. I will certainly volunteer again and continue to support this organization!

I've been following the activities of Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary for several months now. I absolutely love seeing their updates on all the animals they've rescued and healed, helping them transition from livestock to loved companions. It makes me so happy to see an organization like this that encourages members of the public to volunteer, letting them experience and learn so much from seeing animals as valuable members of the earth instead of just "not human." Their staff is amazing at healing the rescued animals. Their progress is so impressive. It's the best part of my day when I see some poor chicken or sheep suffering from disease, neglect, and mistreatment become healthy and happy because they were taken in by HHAS. THANK YOU TO THE STAFF!!!!

I first visited Harvest Home a number of years ago. I was immediately impressed by the enthusiasm of the staff and the good health of the animals. I subsequently visited on a number of occasions and found the experience to be consistent. Harvest Home is evidence that you don't have to have hundreds of acres to have a wonderful sanctuary for animals and for people seeking out a special experience.

Harvest Home is one of my favorite organizations! I adopted my ex-battery hens from Christine at Harvest Home. It's very rewarding to see them blossom in good living conditions. I'm grateful for Harvest Home for recognizing that even though they are considered 'throw-aways' by the egg industry, they are still creatures worthy of living. Keep it up, Harvest Home!

I first went to Harvest Home for their annual Toast to the Turkeys celebration when a friend of my shared their post. I love the sanctuary. It's smaller than many and most of their animals are bunnies and the most amazing assortment of birds, ever. First time I was able to actually snuggle with a turkey! Besides chickens and turkeys they have ducks and some game birds I've never seen before. I loved sitting in the bunny house and watching the buns do their own thing. They have helped with the large rescues that other sanctuaries have organized and taken in some of those wonderful hens. The people are warm and friendly. Looking forward to this year's holiday event.

This is one of the best sanctuaries I have ever seen. Its beautiful location is perfectly matched by the beautiful, open-hearted people who run it. The care and tenderness they show to each of the animal residents is a delight to see - they are making a difference every day both in the lives of the animals lucky enough to live there but also for the visitors who flock there to learn more about turkeys, pigs, rabbits, ducks, chickens, and more! The whole place is a true animal haven and I wish I could be there every week!

Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary is close to my heart. They specialize in rescuing birds - hens, turkeys, and other farmed and non-farmed species - and rabbits, but also have resident goats, pigs, dogs - any animal who needs their care. The whole place is founded on one fundamental premise: compassion for all creatures. And the folks involved with the day-to-day running, maintenance, and support of the place are some of the kindest, most altruistic, sensitive, caring and truly compassionate people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. I volunteer there occasionally and can see why people just fall in love with the place and the residents. It's a very special sanctuary - nestled in the middle of wide open countryside, surrounded by vineyards, and is a true haven for anyone. I recommend this sanctuary with all my heart!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit more donors so that Harvest Home could expand their operation and rescue more animals and educate more people.

I volunteered here over the summer and I must say the people and animals are terrific. It is quite obvious how much these folks care about their sanctuaries' mission. They take excellent care of their animals and do a great amount of outreach in their community. This wonderful safe haven deserves much public gratitude for all their efforts.

We adopted some beautiful rescue hens from Havest home! They were in beautiful shape thanks to this rescue. They delivered hens to our home and went over their adoption contract, very professional rescue! We are very pleased with the hens we have adopted! This is our third adoption from Harvest Home. Overall this is just a wonderful sanctuary that does great things!
