The Monkey Farm reviews
Loved it. We took the tour and we were the only ones on it. Our son really enjoyed feeding and being able to hold and pet the animals. We also enjoyed making tea from the plants on the farm and... more »
The mission of The Monkey Farm is a valid one. They care for random animals and random people alike with Grace and compassion. We thoroughly enjoyed our horseback riding adventure, even in the... more »
The farm is so cool. But the horse ride was amazing. You even get to ride in the ocean. I would definitely recommend it.
A self sustaining farm and wildlife refuge that really does care. I've been to several "santuaries" before and most of them are just rip offs and tourist traps. The owner only makes money through the horse tours she offers to the beach as well as any donations from visitors. People are always calling her to come and rescue animals ! She doesn't get paid to do this! She also doesn't get paid to feed the homeless and has been the only one who has done this once a week, everyweek since 2014. How do i know this ? I was a volunteer there. Was so impressed with her , has come back roughly every 1-2 yrs to continue to volunteer and help out. Just this year in 2019 she had also started "rescuing " people. In an unintentional but wonderful turn of events have now helped 6 homeless people with varying addictions, clean up their lives, found new purpose and respect for themselves. I highly recommend you booking a hour ride to the beach and visiting her farm . Not only will you have 1 of the most refreshing and beautiful rides but you will learn about farming and get to see some of the current livestock at her farm.
