Life in the animal abode

The Animal Abode let's you try out what it would be like to be a real zookeeper! You get to spend time with adorable domestic animals and experience what life on a farm could be like.

We begin by getting to know the animals in the Abode – depending on the season, the yard is inhabited by mini pigs, mini horses, ponies, goats, alpacas, turkeys and the crew of the hen house. We do routine chores of the Abode together with the animals. These can include the collection of eggs, taking care of the animals, preparing their food and cleaning the facilities, for example. The day can be a calm, relaxing one or a real sweaty workout, just as you prefer.

The activities of the Abode are also ideal for pensioners and other special groups, and the days are always planned in accordance with the group’s ability to function. The yard is flat and easy to traverse, and there are plenty of shelters if it happens to rain. If you cannot participate in the chores yourself, you can also watch others work and simply enjoy the company of the animals.

After a busy day, a shared snack in the kota cabin is exactly what you need. It is nice to go over what one has learned during the day and what kind of feelings the experience gave rise to by an atmospheric roaring fire.

This experience is based on Green Care thinking. We wish to improve people’s well-being and quality of life through nature and animals. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy these things.
