"Visiting Mt. Hoppe Farm is a must in Wimberley." Guest Review
Caring for sanctuary animals is incredibly rewarding and absolutely necessary every single day.

Critical daily tasks that only require loving animals and being reliable.
Swing by before 11:00 am to distribute appropriate feed to animals. Instructions are provided and feed is marked for who gets what, when, and how much.
Just like humans, animals need water and very much prefer fresh water. Fill and refresh waterers. Waterers are easy to find inside all animal pens/pastures.
Most of the time, this task amounts to a nice walk around pens/pastures visiting with the precious souls living there. Should you discover something out of place, needs repair, etc. please address or alert Laura/Ed to address.
Help our large and small beasts beautify. Brush the manes and coats of Seamus, Guinness, Chipper, and the goats. We have several brushes you can use.
These projects are great for volunteer groups (e.g., home school, work, rec teams, etc.)
We provide the composted soil and location for the beautiful and tasty flowering plants you bring to plant. Please check ahead for recommended plants for where they will be planted.
More fencing is always needed so that more rescues and forever homes can be provided to farm animals in need. Bonus points if you can bring your own fencing materials and tools. If you cannot, let us know and we will have needed material/ tools available.
We supply the paint and you bring your preferred gear (e.g., rollers, trays, brushes) to provide a fresh coat to the stables that keep donkeys, mini-horses, and cattle protected and dry during storms.
Do you have an idea for a project? Perhaps your homeschooler has a lesson that would be enriched by doing something on the farm? We are very happy to custom design projects for all ages and interests. email Laura@MtHoppeFarm.org to start designing an unforgettable visit to the farm.
