Our mission is to inspire a compassionate, healthy and earth-friendly way for all beings to live together and to share our rescue farm with vulnerable people in our community so that they can experience a healing connection to others, to nature and to themselves.
Graze in Peace is a farm animal rescue and learning center located on 20 acres just north of Portland, Maine. Our current rescued residents include chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats, sheep and llamas. Along with farm animal rescue, we offer humane education, community outreach, and therapeutic Care Farm activities where displaced, disadvantaged or disabled people can come use the therapeutic setting of our rescue farm as a place for healing and learning.
If you love animals and are interested in helping us offer a healing place for animals and people, send us a message today! We'd love to hear from you.
We'll work with your schedule.
