What is a Care Farm?

Posted on by

Graze in Peace Care Farm ProgramAs a care farm, Graze in Peace will offer people who need a healing space (just like our rescued animals) a safe place to come reconnect to nature, to others, and to themselves. A new fully-accessible raised bed sensory garden is in the works as well as a nature trail with benches to sit and observe the animals, the hundred-year old trees and the tiny wildlife along our running brook. In Spring, 2018, we will be adding a community center yurt to the farm to house all of our new care farm and educational activities.

Although care farms are not all that common in the United States, there are many in other countries. Many have therapy programs, much like therapy horse farms here, that offer at-risk individuals or individuals with special needs a place to build personal, social and vocational skills in the natural, peaceful, stress-free environment of the farm.
