    Can I visit the donkeys?

    Many adopters are able to visit their donkey on the farm in Oxfordshire, UK. The full address and contact details are provided in the gift tin. The Sanctuary is open daily from 11am–4pm. If you would like to visit a particular donkey, please contact the farm beforehand as the donkeys often take part in community activities off the farm. Please note that the farm can get very muddy!


    Will I be able to ride my adopted donkey?

    No. Although some of the donkeys can be ridden, all riding time is given to children with special needs.
