What Does the 501C3 status mean for the farm and donors/supports?
Being an official 501 means that all donations are now officially tax-exempt with the IRS, and any donation of $250 or above is considered non-taxable income for you come tax season.
For the farm, this means that we can gain more support and eventually get the farm certified as an official Federal animal rescue.
How Do the Animals Come to the Farm?
The majority of the animals on the farm are rescues. However, we do practice controlled breeding of the goats for our therapy program. So that we ensure the best genes and trainability of the animals.
For the rescues, they come to us for many reasons. For most of the animals, they have come to us because their owners are no longer able to care for them and their owners want to make sure the animals continue to live their best lives possible. We are honored and humbled for the animals we have taken in, and we are excited about our new direction and future so that we can provide a safe and loving home for any animal that needs it, which is all possible only with your support!
You can always donate to the farm, and all proceeds go to the animals. We also take item donations in place of monetary assistance.

For FACILITIES: Virtual Goat Therapy Visits 2022

Covid has postponed traditional animal therapy visits. Just like us, the animals have found Zoom and adapted so that they can provide their healing therapy to a broader range of individuals and groups.
With Covid increasing feelings of depression and social isolation, animal-assisted therapy is a healthy and safe option to help improve our happiness, well-being, and sense of togetherness. Furthermore, social isolation and loneliness affect people who have few social contacts and lack an overall sense of belonging; It affects older adults and individuals with mental, behavioral, and physical disabilities who are often ostracized in our society the most.

 Our virtual visits are available to those living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, residential treatment programs (e.g., behavioral health, rehabilitation), inpatient/ outpatient medical centers (e.g., hospitals, cancer centers), church organizations, and other group settings as well as for veterans or individuals with limited mobility, autism, or who are socially isolated. We are also happy to work with libraries, camps, homeschool groups, and school reading programs.

Studies have shown that watching animal videos or viewing pictures of animals does put people in good moods. Our virtual visits with the goats and other animals are always fun and, at times, chaotic because we never know what shenanigans the goats will get up to.

Our virtual visits are conducted with Zoom

Schedule your facility's visit today!

Thai Chi: Meditation in Motion

Looking to improve your health, happiness, and well-being? Begin your journey for better health and well-being through the power of Tai Chi. The gentle movements of tai chi reduce stress and offer many health benefits: flexibility, coordination, increased circulation and blood flow, muscle strength, joint lubrication, improved posture and breathing.





"Thai Chi ia enthralling. Not long after you take up the exercise, you begin to enjoy a marked improvement in health and well-being, which motivates you to practice more" (Ong, 2013, p. 7).

"The ancient Chinese exercise is hardly as mainstream as aerobics or the treadmill, but with its gentle, fluid movements and proven health benefits, it’s a natural arthritis workout" (DiLonardo, n.d., para. 1).

Why Include our Animals friends in our Mindfulness Practices?

  • Animals live in the present moment
  •  Animals help us relieve stress 
  •  Animals promote empathy and prosocial behaviors 
  • Animals help us get out in nature 
  • Animals enhance mindfulness practices or meditation 

Regardless of the mindfulness practice you adopt, being with your animal friend as you meditate is a great way to help you focus on your breath and relax. The cats, rabbits, and goats all like to sit in my lap (on at the same time – maybe) while I practice mindfulness and the animals are key to all our animal reiki sessions because they are the ones that provide the healing, peaceful energy. Just being with your animal companion helps you focus on the present moment and increases our awareness of your outer and inner environments.
