Ką veiksite

We'll meet the animals in the small animal enclosure (2 bunnies and 2 turkeys) and the large animal enclosure (2 goats, 2 sheep, and 2 pigs) and we'll spend time hand feeding the animals and petting them. Some are shy, but others are pretty friendly. I can tell you each animals history of how he/she arrived here. If Newton is in a good mood he might do some jumps for us (he's working on his goat agility training) If all guests are over the age of 8 we can also take the goats and sheep out for a walk up the road if you like - they are leash trained! The sanctuary visit is a simple experience...just come connect with our animals, go for a little walk with the goats and sheep, and feed them all some treats :) Your visit can be as long or short as you like. This is a fantastic kids experience and is geared toward kids but adults can participate as well. MONEY RAISED FROM THIS EXPERIENCE GOES 100% TO ANIMAL FEED AND CARE. We are not a for profit farm.
Please note: toddlers are welcome on the farm but this experience is best suited to kids ages 3 and up. We've found the under 3's often scare the animals with loud shrieks or sudden movements. Kids under 3 have also sometimes been afraid of the animals.
Other things to note
You'll be walking over uneven terrain. There is a bathroom in the main residence that guests can use. No cell or wifi service.

I grew up in Nelson on a small hobby farm. My love for animals has led me to rescue rabbits, lambs and goats. In 2019 I started Rixen Creek Micro Farm Sanctuary! Being micro we only have a few animals. We're slowly expanding but for now its just 8 animals. Our animals are here for life (most were saved from slaughter) to be loved and cared for...they are not used for meat, milk, or wool.
The goats and sheep are often out in public - at the beach, dog park, Baker street, birthday parties...they try to inspire folks to try plant based meat and dairy alternatives since they themselves are meat rescues (and this is where my passion, expertise, and experience lies) . But the farm visit experience does not need to include this topic unless you're curious about it. We just want folks to come and have fun meeting the animals!

I came to visit with my partner, and wow SO much fun!! Debra’s a great host and her animals are so sweet and fun. We chose to go for the walk with the goats/sheep, which is a MUST-DO if you’re able. You could really tell how much she cares for those critters. The bunnies were my favourite, but the turkeys surprised me with how friendly and cute they were. Thank you Debra, and thank you to the animals!!

Debrah’s sanctuary was beautiful, and her love for the animals was clear. My kids and I loved feeding the animals and getting to know their personalities. Definitely recommend visiting!

The best animal hour! Debra is so sweet and we loved visiting her animals and getting to interact with them. we got to feed them, play with them and take them on a walk. My 3 and a half year old LOVED the farm and the animals. The animals are very gentle and good with kids.

Myself, my 3 year old son, 5 month old daughter, and their grandmother had a wonderful time visiting the animals at Debra’s place. What an enriching experience! Debra really went out of her way to make the children comfortable (one has sensory difficulties) and keep them involved and entertained. The animals are clearly happy and well looked after. It’s nice to have a unique experience like this so close to home. We will definitely be back!

Had a great time. Debra’s directions for location and what to expect were spot on. What a beautiful location! We really enjoyed meeting Debra and all her animals. We had opportunity to take the goats and sheep for walk. Good experience for us city folk and our teenagers.
