Everyone loves a fuzzy farm animal; the Asher’s Farm Sanctuary rescues farm animals and welcomes visitors to meet all their adorable residents.


Pretoria, South Africa (28 April 2022) – The Ashers Farm Sanctuary is a fun way to spend the day surrounded by adorable farm animals all the while doing some good to support them.

Asher’s Farm Sanctuary was inspired by the life of the late Oscar Hirsch, whose Hebrew name was Asher. He spent most of his life as a vegetarian and, in his later years, went full vegan. Oscar spent his life advocating against animal cruelty, and his dying wish was to contribute to bettering animal lives through education. The sanctuary was established in his memory.

“We hope that visitors who spend time with the animals at our farm sanctuary will be able to gaze upon them with new eyes, recognizing their gentle nature and connecting to them in spirit with understanding and humility. We believe that, in this way, the relationship between animal and man can begin to heal, grow and strengthen.”

The sanctuary is a vegan venue and is open to the public for visits to meet the animals. By inviting people to meet the farm animals, see their nature and explore alternatives, the organisation saves not only the lives of the farm animals but also those who may be affected by the farming industry in future.

They welcome guests Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am to 3 pm. The sanctuary is on the outskirts of Pretoria.

“The rescues at Asher’s love visitors as much as you’ll love touring our farm! Our sanctuary is home to rescued cows, pigs, chickens, horses and other farm animals — and each has a special story.”

You can adopt a farm rescue by contributing to their feed and medical costs, or if you want to help a few of the animals, you can purchase a bale of hay for the sanctuary. These options help them feed the animals in their care and welcome more rescues when needed.

If you would like to find out how you can visit or want to donate to the animal’s needs, you can check out the website here.
