“Creating an organic farm has been a goal of the sanctuary since inception, and we’re so thrilled to see it come to life and feed, both our animals, and be available for the community,” said Agnes Barrelet, executive director.

“Now is the perfect time to come for a visit to the Farm – there are plenty of shady spots to take in the peacefulness, and even misters to stay cool, even on the warmer summer days, plus you can take home some fresh veggies too!”

San Diego Animal Sanctuary & Farm is open seven days a week, from 10AM to 5PM.
