Animal-Assisted Therapy

Animal-assisted therapy has been shown to greatly improve socialization, anxiety, behavior, and language skills among people with special needs. Our trained goats work alongside Karen Krivit, a LSW with over 30 years of experience, to address the diverse needs of each patient. Therapy sessions are conducted on our farm with individuals, pairs, or in small groups.
