Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, located in Campbellville, Ontario Canada, was founded in 2014. Since its inception, Happily Ever Esther has been dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected and abandoned farmed animals. Our goal is to provide a safe, life-long home for all of the rescues and to educate the public about the true nature of farmed animals through tours, volunteer programs and community outreach. We thank you for visiting our website and hope you will visit us in person!


How did Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary come to be? Well . . . it started with a little piglet named "Esther". And things grew (literally and figuratively) from there. You may have heard about Steve and Derek's back story from the media, but there may be a few things you didn't know.

A farm is quite an operation and requires many hands to help build, maintain, clear and repair outbuildings, fencing and pastures as well as house and feed our happy residents. We are always looking for regular volunteers who are willing to be an integral part of our day-to-day operations.
