Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary public tour season runs from July to September and private group tours are offered from April through late October.. Sanctuary tours typically last about 1 hour followed by a brief Q&A period. There are also several displays and areas on the farm that you can explore after the tour. An average visit, including the official tour, takes approximately 2 hours. However, if you prefer to get down and dirty, there are also Volunteer Work Days in which you can come out and help on the farm. Our calendar below details upcoming dates for PUBLIC TOURS, WORK DAYS and SPECIAL EVENTS.
