Greyton Farm Animal Sanctuary
Greyton Farm Animal Sanctuary is a 40 hectare farm just 7km outside of Greyton. The sanctuary was officially registered in 2014. Owners, Nicola Vernon and Rohan Mills, fully dedicated the farm as a sanctuary after years of rehabilitating discarded and suffering animals from nearby farms. Baby lambs and even a calf, too weak to move with their mothers were lovingly fed and given a warm home to call their own.
The sanctuary has grown in leaps and bounds and is now home to more than 160 animals. Each animal has a name and a story and is lucky to have found a home in which to run free.
Nicky often shares the stories of the rescues on their social media pages, from Eric, the piglet found tied to a trolley in a squatter camp, to Cari, the newly pregnant ewe found dying, covered in bite marks, to the indomitable Legend, the horse that had impaled himself on a fence and was suffering terribly. Each of these beautiful animals are lovingly cared for, returned to full health and given a safe place to live out their days.
Visiting the sanctuary
Visits to the sanctuary are welcomed between 9am and 2pm daily. A small donation of money, fruits or veggies is encouraged. As a registered non-profit the sanctuary relies solely on donations for the amazing work that they do.
Ways to help
There are a number of ways to help support Greyton Farm Animal Sanctuary. You can volunteer your time, book accommodation on the farm, sponsor an animal monthly, donate via snapscan or even dine at their vegan cafe, Pure Cafe, in Greyton which donates 100% of its profits back to the sanctuary.
Another wonderful way to donate is to add your reviews on the A Billion Veg app and choose Greyton Farm Animal Sanctuary as the beneficiary.
