Our day will start at the sanctuary where you’ll be greeted by our team before meeting your co-hosts, Brianna and Winter. Next, you’ll begin a Skylands Cow Safari — a hayride adventure that takes you through three hilly pastures where you’ll be completely surrounded by happy, roaming cows. At the first stop, you’ll do some foraging to find and collect special grasses that cows love to snack on. Then, as you tour the pastures, Mike will share each cow’s unique story, and you will be able to connect one on one with them. The last stop will be at the top of the highest point of the sanctuary, where you’ll have access to a gorgeous view of the countryside. With cows grazing all around, take in the beautiful sunset and enjoy a casual farm dinner. Back at the main farm house, end the evening with “calf bedtime,” when you’ll get to watch the youngest babies get their bottles before bed.
Hi, I’m Mike, but to my cows, I’m Dad. I’m the founder of Skylands Animal Sanctuary, and I’ve spent the last 9 and a half years rescuing farm animals. Two animals in particular, mom and daughter cows named Brianna and Winter, are pretty popular girls here. They got a lot of attention last year when Brianna jumped from the second level of a transport truck VERY pregnant to save herself and her calf. Two days later, Brianna gave birth to Winter! Now they live at Skylands, which is home to 78 cows (and 248 animals total). I could spend all day watching them run and play with their cow family members and friends — and they love when you snuggle up and pet their squishy muzzles! When you visit, prepare to become just a little bit obsessed with cows (unless, of course, you are already)!
