Ce vei face

Visit our four acre mini-farm right on The Creeper Trail and the South Fork of the Holston River. You'll meet all eight of our donkeys (six miniatures, one standard, and one critically-endangered mammoth) and get to see their individual personalities and herd dynamics up close and personal. You'll learn about equine safety, the importance of the donkey in history, each animal’s personal story (most are rescues), their daily care, and ways they're used in animal-aided therapy. You'll also be able to brush, pet, and take pictures with our beloved pets.

***Per our insurance, the minimum age of participants is twelve years old.

***Upon arriving to our farm, you will be asked to sign a liability waiver (parents must also sign for each child) to participate in this experience. This keeps our farm safe and our insurance company happy. Thank you in advance so much for understanding.

If you need accommodations due to a disability or personal preference, please let us know.

I am the co-owner of Abingdon Donkey Lodge and the caretaker of our herd of eight donkeys. I am a 20-year educator and a best-selling author in the field of PTSD and secondary trauma. I also teach writing workshops that combine memoir writing with equine therapy. I first became interested in miniature donkeys when exploring animal therapy as a treatment for trauma survivors, myself included. I found miniature donkeys to be much calmer, less reactive, more inquisitive, and easier to bond with than their 1000+ pound full-size horse relatives. I met my first miniature donkey four years ago, and that very day I knew these sweet, fuzzy, compassionate, comical long-eared equines would be a lifetime passion. I can't wait to share them with you!

Amazing! This visit was amazing. The donkeys were beyond sweet. We learned so much about these amazing creatures. Christal made accommodations for my husband's difficulty with standing. If you have an elderly relative or someone with ambulatory difficulty, message her and she will likely help so this person can enjoy the experience. We will be going back.

Our group was mesmerized for an hour on a beautiful November afternoon when we got to spend time with eight miniature and large donkeys at the Abingdon Donkey Lodge. This is a great way to chill with donkeys that you can pet, photograph and interact with for most of an hour. Christal, the farm co-owner and guide, had lots of information and stories to share about the donkeys and is an amazing lady. The Alvarado location is pretty and serene, and afterwards we had a picnic at the Holston River park across the street. A great outdoor and “away” experience for friends and family at a very reasonable price.
