How much does it cost to visit the farm?"

is a frequently asked question.

It is absolutely FREE to visit us here at Ray of Light Farm! There is no admission fee. Please come visit us during our business hours, enjoy the day & fresh air!

The majority of our programs require advance bookings, so please give us a call to make your appointment. Guinea Pig and Goat Feeding sessions CAN be booked, or done, as a drop in appointment as long as we have an opening that day. All goat & sheep feeding can absolutely be done as a walk in during the goat feeding hours, with no appointment necessary. Please read more about the exciting programs we have to offer.

 

So come visit us at the Farm! Make a full day of it; sign up for a program! You can also  visit Gillette Castle and Devil's Hopyard, everything is very close! If you get hungry, there is Two Wrasslin' Cats Coffee House down the road from us. Also Hadlyme Country Market on the way to the ferry. By the river you'll find Gelston House and Morinos. And in Moodus there is Village Pizza.

 

Enjoy, and hope to see you soon!

Every year thousands of horses and donkeys are abandoned, abused or slaughtered.  Ray of Light Farm serves as a safe haven for some of these animals by providing medical care, nutritious food, and retraining.    
Many of these beautiful animals are then adopted into loving homes.  Some very special ones go on to serve humanity as therapy animals.  Living out their lives as permanent farm residents, these animals provide a range of little miracles, from giving inspiration and encouragement to an autistic child, to being a gentle and non-judgmental soul for a person suffering or dying from illness.
Ray of Light Farm is open to the public and its animals are available and happy to listen to anyone in need of a friend.

Visiting the farm is FREE

Worth saving...

The horses and donkeys at Ray of Light Farm have an assortment of stories.  

Many, but not all, are nurse mare foals and premarin horses and foals.  Here is a brief description of each.

 

Premarin Horses & Foals

(PMU including Prempro, Premphase, Prempac, and Premelle)

For the production of the drug premarin, horses are kept continually pregnant in order for their urine to be collected. When they can no longer reproduce quickly they are sent to the slaughterhouse. Their meat is then sold for human consumption or dog food.

 

Some foals from these horses are killed immediately after birth and some of the females will be raised to be "Premarin mares" and join the production line. Many will be sold and sent to feedlots to be fattened for slaughter. 

 

Nurse Mare Foals

A nurse mare foal is a foal who was born so that its mother might come into milk. The milk that the nurse mare is producing is used to nourish the foal of another mare, a more “expensive” foal. Primarily these are thoroughbred foals, though certainly not limited to the thoroughbred industry. The nurse mares biological foal is then discarded.
