Seeing things differently

When you live with animals, you either get frustrated because they are constantly doing things that are so extremely un-human (and often these things are not especially endearing), or you realize that you must try to accept that they are fundamentally different. And that is that.

Featured Volunteer

Meet Kimberly!

kim-fpMy name is Kimberly Kim, and I’m a freshman at Holton-Arms School. My favorite subjects are Art and History (I hope to take art history my senior year). I honestly think the farm is one of the most special places for me to spend my time in. The farm really builds a connection between you, the animals, and the people. In the future, I hope to become an architect and travel all around the world and design buildings to help both people and animals.
