A Personal Note from Jillian D. Pelland, OT/L, Owner
Buying a farm certainly caused changes in my life — a lot of changes. There have been so many amazing times, but also some hard times adjusting to this new life. But the one thing I know is that a farm is a healing place. I feel it every time I walk into the barn. Every time I snuggle up on a horse. Every time I feed treats to the goats. Every time I do anything in the barn. There is no place I'd rather be. There are no words to describe the feeling you get when you're there. Connecting with an animal, with nature, provides something that nothing else can. The idea of sharing that feeling with others makes my heart want to burst. We want this farm to be the catalyst for our clients to reach their highest potential. I just know you're going to love it as much as I do!
