A therapeutic/care farm working in unison with farm animals, lavender and other plants, and the nature around us, devoted to providing hope, joy, and unlimited possibilities through the healing powers of nature.
What is a care farm?
Care farming is the therapeutic use of farming practices. A care farm is a place where people can come and reconnect to the earth, animals, nature and themselves. It is a farm where plants, animals and people live in harmony with nature, doing what we do as natural creatures. While there is human intervention, we try and do things as natural as possible. We plant and harvest the lavender, fruits and vegetables, but we do it all in harmony with nature using organic and natural principles. All our animals, most rescued, will get to live natural lives and to express their natural behaviors.
What types of therapy does a care farm provide?
Where can care farms located?
Care farms are very popular in Europe. There are literally thousands of them in Western Europe, but there are only few found here in the United States. Traditionally, care farms are farms that welcome people to come and heal by participating in farm activities in whatever way they can. The very act of participating, being included, being in nature, and having a meaningful task to accomplish can be incredibly healing. We want to offer this to children, to veterans, and people recovering from physical and mental illness.
