Tomten Farm and Sanctuary
Thank you for joining our journey. We provide peace, protection, and possibility to animals in need. Helping animals, helping humans, and creating happily-ever-afters one life at a time through rescue, sanctuary, education, and occasional adoption.
Meet our more than 50 rescues include horses, goats, cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys, mules, cats and fowl. All arrive with their own unique story, each saved from what would have been a terrible fate.
Thanks to people like you we have already touched the lives of over 100 animals in need. Your contribution provides peace, protection, possibility, and daily care to more than 50 rescues.
Come join us at the farm! While we cannot welcome drop-in visitors at the farm, we can and do open our gates regularly for special events and educational opportunities.
You may be wondering just what a Tomten is and why we named our organization "Tomten Farm and Sanctuary." We're happy to share this magical story of peace, protection and possibility and introduce you to the animal-friendly mythical character that inspired us.
If you are Scandinavian descent, you may have grown up hearing this story!
The Magic of Tomten
"...there is, it seems to us, something magic about this place. Whenever I go to visit a farm, I know I am visiting a place that has an owner of the land, the animals, the plants, and those huge machines by which all this is managed. When I go to Tomten, my immediate sense is that this isn't true: no person owns it -- not Jen, not the Board, not even the contributors --the animals do. It is their home, their place, in a way other farms have never been and could never be for them. We are there thanks to their hospitality -- you feel that -- and they ask only that you recognize this truth." — Jack Sammons
