Greenlands Farm started a rescue petting farm in 2011 with a vision to provide a sanctuary to farm animals and an educational platform for the community. Whether adopted from other rescue organizations, donated from owners, or taking in an animal because the farm could provide a good home, these animals are now a part of our farm and have a new life. Family and friends of Greenlands Farm established Helpers of Our Farm (HOOF), a not for profit organization that supports these rescued animals and the education and services they provide.

(b) Our rescued and donated animals will be used as educational tools for children and adults, creating awareness of rescues and their needs.
(c) Some rescued and donated animals will be used for rides for children and/or adults to demonstrate the value of repurposing rescued and donated animals.

About the farm where HOOF is located:
Greenlands Farm is a small sustainable homestead farm with 2 CSA (community-supported agriculture) seasons and an on-site farm store that sells products made and/or grown on the farm.
