We are excited for you and your family to join our farming and farm animal sanctuary journey!

People visit the farm for many reasons from providing an educational experience for children, giving a special treat to a recovering sanctuary animal, a fun weekend activity with visiting friends and family members, or even just to support a local Pick TN Products certified Tennessee farm. From tours, animal encounters, healthy produce options, and farm fresh eggs to events and birthday parties, and everything in between, we have you covered. Willis Willow Farm & Animal Sanctuary is a place to relax, find respite, recharge, and possibly unlock the true meaning of life alongside Drumstick the rooster or Fat Pete the pig.

Farm Tours & Group Visits are by appointment only. View Calendar

Become A Water Warrior

Want to join us in making a difference? Countless hours are spent simply walking buckets of water around the farm multiple times per day to ensure the animals are cared for properly. The Ritchie watering system will be life-changing for the farm and will allow the volunteers to spend more time socializing and providing enrichment for the rescued pigs, donkeys, horses, and more!

Fat Pete

No judgement here, we simply call it like we see it and we say that with love. Sweet Pete is learning that people are going to be nice to him and if that means he gets daily treats, so be it! Support Pete’s watermelon and strawberry (oh, and animal crackers, shhh) addiction with a gift today and receive a special thank you from the big boy himself!


The ladies in our flock have found their way to us in many different ways. An elderly couple needed support when they could no longer care for their hens, so we brought them home. A 4-H program participant ended up with too many birds and asked for help, so we welcomed them to the farm. A farm favorite, Hopper, was injured and now serves as the surrogate mom for babies who enter our program.

Helpful Hay Hero

Hay is for horses and goats, and donkeys, and pigs, and the list goes on. Our annual hay expenses well exceed $2000 per year. We are always searching for hay heroes willing to donate square or round bales of hay to the animals, or a sponsor who is willing to financially support these necessary purchases!

Support Special Projects

We are expanding! Help us create the perfect Billy Goat’s Gruff. The goat habitat is great, but we want to help more goats in need. This expansion will allow us to give more enrichment opportunities to our current residents as well as create space for future friends in need.
