Our programming and practices delve into the wonder and awe behind the art and science of farming. While our main initiative began with horse stabling and boarding, we quickly grew through an effort to improve the nutrient profile and natural grazing opportunities for our horses. This quest brought us to experimentation and then implementing of some mixed crop pastures. It is not uncommon for our horse pastures to feature vast displays of sunflowers. This is just one example of the many ways we strive to utilize nature to nurture the animals, people, plants, and soil at our farm. Everything at our farm works in unison, to create an engaging and lasting experience for all participants and inhabitants. We welcome people of all ages and abilities.
