We provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the human-animal bond and the sense of peace that an individual can achieve through nature. Our clients are valued as individuals with unique strengths and needs and our animals are valued as teaching and healing partners. Our staff is dedicated to helping others improve their health and wellbeing, quality of life, and occupational performance/function.
Partnering with screened and trained animals, we address the physical, mental, and emotional challenges and barriers that many people face as they strive to reach their goals and live a healthy, hopeful, and satisfying life. We provide occupational therapy on a working farm. Our core values are integrated into our standards of care; they guide our practice.
