What you'll do

Did you know that cows hold grudges, pigs can play video games, and turkeys recognize their favorite humans?

Join us on Zoom for a virtual visit to our sanctuary and meet a variety of rescued farm animals. We'll take you up close and personal with our animal residents, share their stories of resilience and healing, and talk a bit more about the industries they come from. You'll love meeting our animal ambassadors and may be surprised at what you learn since we so rarely see the animals in our food system. Join us as we get up close and personal with cows, pigs, turkeys, goats, sheep and more!

The Experience will last approximately 1 hour. Charlie's Acres is a 501c3 registered non-profit. All Experience proceeds go towards the care of our rescued animal residents.

Great for groups and team building!

This was such a great experience for our team! During Covid, it's been challenging for us to all connect virtually but as animal lovers, we were thrilled to join together and learn about Charlie's Acres.

This was a super fun activity that didn't have the same monotony as other zoom get-togethers! She was very knowledgeable and I could tell that the animals receive true love at this sanctuary. I wouldn't be able to keep up the cheery story telling and touring but she does it flawlessly - a true real life Snow White!

My 8 year old received this experience for his birthday, he's an animal lover! He thoroughly enjoyed it, interacted by asking questions and was amazed he was taken virtually to a farm in America! Very informative and interactive. A lovely gift experience.
