On The Road With James: Cotton Branch Farm Sanctuary

BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, S.C. — PIG CUDDLERS WANTED: We got down in the dirt for this week’s road trip! I hoofed it on over to Cotton Branch Farm Sanctuary, a safe haven for farm animals from all over the South. They have it all at Cotton Branch, from the biggest cow I’ve ever seen in my life down to the most adorable baby ducklings.

One thing that sets them apart, however, are the pigs. Over 200 hogs, both feral and domestic, bask themselves in the sun at the sanctuary. All of those pigs need some love as well, which I was happy to provide. But alas, I can only love so much! They need YOUR help, too.

As a non-profit, Cotton Branch needs volunteers and community support to keep the sanctuary running! You can sign up to cuddle, volunteer, donate, or even adopt a farm animal at www.cottonbranch.org.
