Helpers Of Our Farm

Who We Are

Farm Animal Sanctuary | Education | Nonprofit

History and Mission

We are Helpers Of Our Farm! HOOF is a nonprofit organization centered around education and providing a sanctuary for rescued, donated, and in-need farm animals.  Our mission is to provide continued care and a sanctuary to farm animals in need, educate children and adults by creating awareness of rescues and their needs, and demonstrate by connecting people to animals how a rescue’s life can be re-purposed for good.  HOOF is a platform for the community to learn, grow, and volunteer.

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. Greenlands Farm friends established Helpers of Our Farm (HOOF), a not for profit organization that supports these rescued animals and the education and services they provide. We are “Helpers of Our Farm” not only because these animals depend on humans to help them, but also because these animals help us by teaching us how to love, care, and learn from them. They perform an important task of educating visitors during our tours, petting farm, and farm classes. The goal has always been to integrate education into the lives of our community through the lives of these animals. 

Sanctuary

Our sanctuary is located on Greenlands Farm and we provide a beautiful and peaceful home to many animals that have never been given the opportunity to experience loving care.  Each animal is provided with shelter, clean water, and plenty of room to roam free.

Education

Our hope is to reduce farm animal abuse, neglect, and the need for rehoming by educating the public on the reality of care and ownership responsibility.  We believe the lives other farm animals will be changed if there is more awareness of these unsuspected animals in need.  A more educated society creates smarter choices and future advocates.

Rehabilitation

The rehabilitation of animals is approached case by case.  Each animal’s basic needs for healthcare and medical treatment, nutrition and dietary needs, and careful handling and training will be met along with any individual needs on top of those.  We work with each animal to gain and grow trust and to build a healthy herd/companion environment.  Many of our animals are given “jobs” to help their mental health as well.  They are very similar to us in some ways, a working brain is a healthy brain.  Even if that just means greeting you!
