Welcome to Dean Farm Trust

We believe in compassion, life & empowerment – all factors that contribute to a sustainable, healthy & cruelty free planet.

By providing information on the use of animals in factory farming, intensive breeding & cruel sports we seek to enable cruelty free choices and wider awareness.

We hope you enjoy looking through our website, discovering the work we do, and about the animals we look after here at the Sanctuary.
