Elizabeth Wrigley and her daughter Paige began Wrigley Wranch eight years ago. Their love and compassion for animals was the inspiration behind the idea of starting the ranch, an ambitious and sometimes exhausting path, but worth every minute. They would hear of animals that needed rehoming and began to take in creatures big and small. The Christian homeschool family offers a safe, loving environment for the animals who have found their forever home.
Their ranch is home to horses, donkeys, chickens, a turkey, a pot belly pig named Barbie Q and many more loveable creatures. God put it on their heart to share their beautiful farm with people in the community. Visitors are first greeted by donkeys welcoming you to their home. They enjoy chomping on carrots that guests feed to them.
If you are looking for something fun to do as a family or for your kids to do this summer, they offer a variety of activities, including a petting farm, educational classes, and camps. Unit studies are provided to scouts earning merit badges and to homeschoolers. Private horseback riding lessons are available as well.
Wrigley Wranch is the perfect location for your child’s next birthday party. With the COVID-19 pandemic still among us, what better way to celebrate your child’s special day than with an outdoor party in the sunshine and fresh air?
If you need a pet sitter while on your vacation, contact Wrigley Wranch and ask for Paige’s Pet & Farm Sitting services. You will rest assured and be able to enjoy your vacation knowing your pet is being well cared for and in good hands.
Here is what some of their customers had to say:
“Paige and Elizabeth are fantastic pet sitters They take meticulous care of my horses. Their attention to detail is refreshing. I am thankful to have them watching over my boys when I go out of town.” – L. Griffith
“I loved seeing my son, Aiden, who’s 2, interacting with the different farm animals. We will be planning another trip back soon!” – A. Holcomb
