Animal lover or non-animal lover, this place is sure to win your heart. There are ample places to visit in Ahmedabad, however, one with such concept of taming and raising animals that were either given to them by friends or they found abandoned is spellbinding. Animals are raised and nurtured with due care, love, compassion that every visitor can feel in the warmth given by the caretakers and love in the eyes of animals.Animals are well trained to behave fantastically with visitors and each visitor, let it be a small or an adult gets bonded with an animal in such a manner that it gets difficult to say goodbye at the end of the entire visit. Akanksha who takes care of the animal’s guides each of the visitors politely and comforting animals and visitors both together. She is very charming and gracious.

Ones to touch base there you are asked to wait for a while so that some guide is available for the entire session. The place is located amidst greenery and you are greeted with much polite Akanksha who happens to be the wife of one of the partners and takes care of the farm.Geese and geese everywhere. Never in my life I have fed geese with food grains. It was fun feeding geese with spoons. All Geese had fun enjoying their feed and later they all headed for water in a pond nearby. The place also had a goat, mountain sheep, pigs, ducks, donkey and a mule called a buddha. He happened to be the oldest on the farm. He was used scrupulously to carry a heavy load and ones he couldn’t do it any more he was abandoned by the owner. He was rescued by the farm people and buddha the mule found his forever home. The mule was so accustomed to hugs and love that he never wanted to be caged. He always wanted to be around the caretakers. Mountain sheep was naughty enough to take feed from you hand ones you ask her to jump from one stand to other. All the animals are so lovely, obeying though we get to see them for the first time.
The entire farm was divided into parts. After finishing one part we were headed towards the other and to our surprise, it was a part of Rabbits. Rabbits and rabbits everywhere. Jumping, enjoying, rushing, running, crawling and trying to snatch feed from your hand. They were so pretty and chubby that we were blushing throughout the session. My 1.5-year-old had fun feeding rabbits till they got contended. We had fun looking at the little one really having a fun time amid the animals.
What next! Surprises couldn’t end. We had a session with guinea pigs and lion-headed rabbits. They were tiny and we fed them with apples and carrots. We met Krish the rat. He is famous enough to have an Instagram page of his own. We also visited chicks, ostrich and pigeons. Pigeons were so in love with the place that though the cage was open they never wanted to fly away. We fed each animal to our heart’s content and we also met 5 hours old chick. The visit was so hypnotic that we never wanted to leave it. Our next visit to feed the animals is surely booked. Visit this place and you are sure to fall in love with the animals. Love, compassion and care are what we need in this world. Let it animals or human, but when you meet these animals you feel touched, you feel rooted and love for our nature, our God and his existence just augments to a different dimension.
