The Farm rescues and provides sanctuary for abused, neglected, and abandoned animals.
At The Farm, animals learn to trust again and have a chance to thrive and live out their lives in peace, comfort, dignity, and love.
Mama Blossom and Baby Poppy came to the Farm in March 2022, when Poppy was just 11 days old. Unwanted by the original owner, our "hay guy" Wayne Hart assisted us in bringing them to the Farm. Donkeys are smart and affectionate. Mama Blossom is as sweet as can be and, of course, Poppy is as spoiled as a baby should be!

The Farm at Oatland North is an animal sanctuary located on the north end of St. Simons Island. In the 1700's the land was known as Oatland Plantation. Doug Taylor, Barbara Hasell Murrah's grandfather, purchased the property in the 1940's. Barbara and her husband, Bascom, returned to the Island over a dozen years ago and began the farm with her horse, Lightning. They were soon joined by their daughter,
Natalie, who brought 2 cows with her, Amanda and Panda.
The family farm continued to grow as the farm adopted retired, unwanted, abused, and abandoned animals. The Farm was primarily funded by the Murrah family and in 2012 it was incorporated and became a 501 c(3) not for profit charity. Sadly, Barbara lost her brief battle with cancer in July 2013. With the help of the Murrah family, dedicated volunteers, and friends, the Farm continues to provide sanctuary for animals.
