Freedom Hill Sanctuary

Where Life Begins!

The Freedom Hill Story

A lifetime dream to be able to create a safe haven for farm animals who have for such a long time been the forgotten ones.

Who would ever think that Lynn lamb would be our inspiration to take on such a huge venture and establishment of Freedom Hill.

Lynn was one of a twin born on a cold winter night on the 1st July 2011 on a sheep farm in the Adelaide Hills. Lynn had been rejected by his mum and found the following day, weak, extremely cold and not a lot of hope held for his survival. Luckily Lynn found his way to our home

As time went on and Lynn grew stronger and stronger we had the privilege to see a beautiful character emerge from this sentient being. Someone who not only had the will to live but the effortless energy to show us his love and to be loved as all animals should be.

Our property at that time was only a 10 acre allotment in the hills and with a driving force like Lynn I found I couldn’t sit back any longer so we sold all we had and purchased 48 acres of beautiful land just out of Woodside in the Adelaide Hills.

Since Lynn we have added more rescues and will continue to build our family and carry on the dream. Freedom Hill Sanctuary was founded by Kym Henley and with the support and help of my husband Richard we hope you will enjoy Freedom Hill as much as us!

Freedom Hill will be a place for people to come and visit, share their love and become more aware of the plight of farmed animals, and in return a guarantee of being licked, smooched and loved so much from all our fur babies.

Our aim at Freedom Hill is to not only provide a safe haven for rescued animals but also to promote, educate and encourage compassionate cruelty-free living. When we are not spending time at Freedom Hill, you can find me busily working away at Everything Vegan 172 Goodwood Road, Goodwood or shop with us online at Vegan Online. 

All profits from my online & retail store help support future rescues and ongoing care at Freedom Hill Sanctuary.

Vegan Online provides convenient cruelty-free shopping for vegans, vegetarians and those who care for animals. Now days we are so blessed to have the luxury of numerous cruelty free choices when it comes to food, cosmetics and household products, it is becoming gradually easier to embrace a more compassionate lifestyle. Vegan Online makes it just a little more accessible and effortless to shop cruelty-free, with our items delivered right across Australia, straight to your home. If you would like learn more or view our range of products please visit or pop in store and have a chat to any of the staff who are more than happy to help with any queries.


Freedom Hill Sanctuary is a small non-profit organisation dedicated to providing a loving home to neglected & unwanted farm animals.

We are located in South Australia, in the Adelaide Hills, with 48 acres of picturesque hills country. Freedom Hill is the first sanctuary for farm animals in South Australia.

Our mission at Freedom Hill Sanctuary is to provide a safe haven for animals that have been rescued from abuse, exploitation or neglect. We also aim to change the way people view farmed animals and promote, educate and encourage compassionate cruelty-free living.

Life begins at Freedom Hill for all our rescues and each and everyone will always have a safe, happy and forever home.

We are not open to the public but our future plan is to open Freedom Hill for weekend visits for families and later school visits.

Thanks for your support,

Kym & Richard x
