the farms

To our association belong our animal sanctuary ‚Animal Refuge‘ in 15377 Buckow, our animal sanctuary ‚Muckele’s Farm‘ in 14552 Michendorf and since spring 2018 our big animal sanctuary project ‚Elisenhof‘ in 15274 Hermersdorf, Müncheberg.

Our ‚Animal Refuge‘ is located east of Berlin in Buckow/OT Hasenholz and with its 5200 sqm has been used as a farm since 2015.

Muckele’s Farm

Our ‚Muckele’s Farm‘ is located south-west of Berlin in Michendorf and contains 4000 sqm fruit meadow and garden as well as 3000 sqm forest. The home of our Annette (R.) has been used as a farm since 2015 and offers enough space for numerous animals to live peacefully.

Our animals on the ‚Muckele’s Farm‘ can be seen here.

If you would like to visit our ‚Muckele’s Farm‘ regardless of your work assignments, please contact our dear Annette (R.) via email to .



Since April 2018 we have been leasing a 2.6 hectare site surrounded by beautiful nature in Hermersdorf, Müncheberg. It is our dream to realize our big life yard project there.

If you want to meet our fosterlings on our ‚Elisenhof‘, have a look around.

We regularly receive enquiries from people who would like to visit our’Elisenhof‘ farm and get their own impression of our major project. We are very happy about these inquiries and would like to introduce you to our farm of life and our protégés. In order not to unnecessarily complicate the daily work on the farm as well as all organizational tasks in the entire association, we would like to ask you not to visit us spontaneously, however, but on the intended visiting and working days.

Visiting days:

In the period from 1st May to 31st October we would like to offer you (initially) every 2nd Saturday of the month and every 4th Sunday of the month between 12:00 and 16:00 o’clock the opportunity to get to know our Elisenhof and its inhabitants personally.

On these days there will be 2 guided tours each. The first tour starts around 12:00, the second tour starts around 14:00. No registration is required for these visiting days – however, please arrive on time shortly before the start of the tour.

Please note that our farms are not petting zoos and any contact between you and our fosterlings always takes place at our discretion, taking into account the individual preferences and daily sensitivities of the individual animals and only in our presence.

We look forward to seeing you.
