This is a full-time working farm and there may be horses, riders, and volunteers around the facility at almost any time; hosts Lee and Jim manage the farm and run programs full time. We have 3 working cats and a small, hypo-allergenic, opinionated but friendly Therapy dog-in-training (Mini Schnauzer Bert) on site- please do not reward him for bad behavior by petting him when he barks or jumps! We use a Kirby vacuum and hepa filters to minimize dander, however if you have severe cat allergies please bring benadryl or other allergy remedies just in case. The apartment is the only space where guests may bring their pets.
