Hej I’m Christopher and I was born on 14 February 1984.
I grew up and lived most of my life in small town on the English and welsh border before moving to rural Spain when I was 23, I have spent most of my early working life working in construction and in a small construction company once owned by my father, I always felt like I needed to do more and dreamt of living a self sufficient off grid life so at 23 I left the UK for good and moved to Spain where my father had purchased an old farmhouse in the mountains of Galicia.
Over the next 7 years I helped him rebuild most of the old buildings and learnt to live in the natural world without electricity or running water.
Washing was done in a plastic bucket and the toilet was a wooden box with sawdust to cover, life was often hard but the feeling of freedom was truly incredible and taught me the best and most rewarding lessons id encountered so far in my life.
In 2015 I met a Danish woman and decided to leave Spain and move to her home country of Denmark and try to build a new life, id planned to just get a 9/5 job and help her make home. Sadly I couldn’t find any employment and couldn’t pick up the language quick enough.
I became unhappy and felt very down, I needed to make a change and longed for a way out of my depression, then I found Aslan one day while going to buy some ducks and thats when Fields of Freedom was born.
Now 4 years later I run the sanctuary with my beautiful partner Katia who I met in the summer of 2018 and instantly fell in love, Today we are the biggest sanctuary in Denmark and continue to grow everyday we hope to expand in the coming years and become self sufficient in both own food and the animals feeds as possible, we want to help as many animals as possible both by rescue and offering advice to owners in need and will continue to educate the public on animal care and compassion.
