About Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary:
Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains in the town made famous for peace and music, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary provides shelter to cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, and goats who have been rescued from cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment.
The sanctuary is open from 11AM-4PM. Tour times are 11:30, 1:15, and 3:00. I am suggesting we go to the earliest tour before the hottest part of the day comes around, but we can move the time until later, if needed.
Free for members and children 3 and under
Carpooling: Once we get an idea of who is available and interested we can choose a location(s) to meet and drive up together.
Directions from Woodstock: (Recommended over GPS directions)
From the center of downtown Woodstock the sanctuary is 7.2 miles west on 212.
Head on 212 West towards Bearsville 212. Be aware that in Bearsville 212 takes a right turn while route 45 is straight. Make sure to stay on 212.
Follow 212 thru Shady and Lake Hill. After 4 or 5 winding miles you’ll see a sign for Willow. When you pass the white church you’re exactly 6/10 mile from Van Wagner Road. The sign for Van Wagner is small but it’s easy to spot because there is a Flagstone/Bluestone dealer and a car repair place at the intersection. Also there’s a big sign for the Willow Post Office. At night it’s easy to spot because it’s one of the few illuminated intersections. Turn right on Van Wagner and you’ll see a big field and barns on the left. The entrance is 35 Van Wagner, second driveway on the left.
