Rescue Animals

We kindly ask you NOT to bring your dogs into the garden unless  you are able to carry it the entire time you are here… We have ducks, chickens, parrots and cats on the property whose safety we are responsible for—including our guests. Thank you so much for understanding!

We have an African Grey Cockatoo in the garden. Please note for those sensitive to “caging birds” that we do NOT support the bird trade. Our bird is a rescue bird from homes in which they were no longer able to either be safe, happy or properly cared for. OUR BIRD IS DEEPLY LOVED, well cared for  and we take it out of its house EVERY day. We see its home as PROTECTION for it (and in some cases, you), not “caging” it. We appreciate the concern of those who would prefer to see birds free, we get it. However, we prefer to see birds alive, healthy and happy…and our bird is!

Meet Shanti!

Shanti (“Peace” in Sanskrit) is an African Grey Parrot. He joined us in July of 2015 at 20 years old. He adds a lot of levity and is a majestic addition!
