how adoptions started

Calf adoption started in 2010, when some people from Columbus, Ohio (USA) emailed us and asked if we would consider letting them adopt a calf for their daughter's birthday. We thought, 'Why not'. We sent them an adoption certificate and we now periodically keep them up to date with the ongoing adventures of their adopted calf. The family loves getting photos and stories of what is happening in the paddocks. The calf they adopted has now had her own calf, so it has been quite an adventure for everyone.

Australian families are now adopting cute calves too. People with adopted calves love finding out all the news, checking out the photographs and videos online.

If adopting a really cute, miniature calf something you think you might like to do for someone or for yourself, then simply email us for details. Contact Us by clicking on the beautiful little heifer calf This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

GOLD CREEK Hope would love being adopted. A very lucky someone could be kept updated on all of little Hope's adventures and antics as she grows.

Profits from our calf adoption program, including mascot sales, help support farm animal shelters, sanctuaries and farm animal rescue organisations in Australia.


Devin M from the U.S.A June 2011
What a wonderful experience this was! I adopted a calf, Daisy, for my boyfriend in honor of our 6 month anniversary. He and I both live in a large city in the US and ever since I've known him he's talked about the ecological benefits of miniature cattle, not to mention how darn cute they are!
I looked everywhere for a place I could make a donation or virtually adopt a cow but could not find anything. I broadened my search to international mini cow farms and thank goodness I found
Suzanne was one of the most helpful people I've ever done business with. She was able to get out an adoption certificate the same day. She took as much care and concern as if she was giving this gift to someone herself.
Everything was so easy; it was the perfect gift. Now we have a trip to Australia to visit the farm on our list of things to do.
Thanks so much Suzanne!
