Farm Animal Rescue

Learn about animals that have been rescued from commercial food industry. We practice individual animal care and not herd health such as you would find in industry.

The farm is located in a village that has no public transport. The village is one mile away
(25 minute walk) and has a grocery store, cafes, post office and pub. Woolworths delivery groceries to the farm.

There is a swimming pool at the sanctuary and lots of attractive outdoor spots for reading or communing with the animals.

Volunteers share a two bedroom bungalow with other volunteers. Our volunteers are absolutely committed to the well-being of the sanctuary animals and whatever the animals need to be healthy and happy. Work is 3.5 days a week, a full day includes dawn and dusk. There are multiple extended breaks throughout the day between tasks. Training typically takes around two weeks through a managed process that lets you slowly become familiar with all of the different jobs. Work is dirty, tiring, and involves a lot of poo. Volunteers must to be able to lift 25 kgs and must be cautiously confident around large animals. You will generally work in a team of two.

Volunteering with F.A.R was an incredible experience I will forever treasure!
Getting to know the animals, learning about their care and histories and the effects of the industry.
Brad was an amazing host, very informative, always willing to answer questions, give us lifts to town/train station and generally look out for you during your stay.
The hours are long but there’s lots of breaks and the work was fun and v rewarding!
It was a lovely reset for me and such a special experience I would recommend to everyone!

My experience at farm animal rescue was very nice, i fell in love with all of the animals there. Also, it‘s very nice to have other volunteers live with you whom you can connect to.
I would recommend the experience if you are looking for nature and animal care.
Know that the days are pretty long which can be hard sometimes but you do have a lot of breaks and nice days off. :)

I had more of an unconventional Worldpackers' experience than most but nonetheless it was a great time! I just came up to Farm Animal Rescue for the day to shoot some content to post on social media and it was such a pleasure getting to know Brad and all the rescue animals. It's obvious how much Brad cares for the animals in the way that he treats them :) They even apply sunscreen and bug spay to keep the animals more comfortable.

I met other Worldpackers there too and they seemed happy with their work situation! They liked how many breaks they get and their living accommodations :)

This will be my second worldpacker trip ever and quite honestly, a lovely experience overall! I loved all the animals I met and took care of whilst I stayed here at FAR! If you love the countryside and away from city life, this is truly the place to go! The volunteer experience was honestly quite a rigorous job, you will have numerous tasks to do throughout the day, with many breaks in between! If you are a hardworker and a animal lover who strives to take care of the farm and the people around you, this is your calling! 💞💞 I will miss every single one of the many animals they have!

I couldn’t have started my worldpackers experience in a better way. Everyone at the sanctuary was super welcoming as soon as I arrived. The work itself is hard but very rewarding, we were each helping all of the animals have the best life possible and learnt about the horrible environment a lot of the animals came from. I would definitely recommend this experience!
