We love that you are asking that question! Our 275 animal residents are still here, healthy and happy, and so excited to see that spring is arriving. They are missing you and they know that you are out there wishing them well and waiting for the time when you can meet them in person.
We want to thank our dedicated animal care staff who care for our beloved animals. This display of compassion and love is a model for all of us, as we humans work together through this COVID-19 crisis. Please know that we are practicing social distancing and following all other CDC protocols as we work to care for the animals. The bond that we share with the animals, and with all of you, the supporters and friends of SASHA Farm, will help us get through this together.
We conferred with some of our best thinkers (animal and human alike, via email and text, of course) and here is what we came up with when asked the question, “how can I help”?:

SHOP TO HELP THE ANIMALS – sorry, the shop is temporarily closed!
We regret to inform you that our store is temporarily closed, as our office staff are unable to come to the office where our inventory is stored. We will look forward to a grand re-opening as soon as we are able to start fulfilling orders again, and we will certainly let you know!
Sponsoring SASHA animal residents is such a great way to bond with them even if you can’t meet them in person just yet. For now, instead of creating mailed sponsorship packets, we will email the sponsorship packets to the sponsor and follow up later with the regular packet of materials.
We will also update current sponsors on their sponsored animals with pictures and descriptions of how they are doing. Click HERE to start a new sponsorship, or check out our Meet the Animals tab HERE for just some of the animals available for sponsorship. For additional information, or if you need an update on your current sponsored animal, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
VIRTUAL TOUR / EVENT
Stay tuned for details on our virtual tour/event. For a small entry fee, you can join us for a video tour of the farm and the opportunity to sponsor an animal resident.
