Mission Statement

Life’s Little Adventure’s Farm is a place where all children, especially those who are hurting, can visit the farm, have fun and be ministered to as well. We rescue animals and use them to help children with physical and emotional healing. In turn, providing healing for hurting families.

Description

Life's Little Adventures Farm first opened in June 2002. Since that time, we have had over 4000 families visit the farm and over 900 families and children return for more intensive Equine Assisted Programming.

We minister to children and their families who are in crisis (chronic illness, special needs, in the foster care system, having been recently adopted, emotionally or mentally ill, or victims of domestic violence and sexual assault). They repeatedly come to the farm and interact with the animals helping break down some of their emotional walls as well as heal some of their heartaches. We help the entire family to feel welcome, loved, accepted and to learn to communicate in new, positive ways.

We assist families in learning about animal care so they can interact and enjoy the animals in a humane way. For families who have children with special needs, we give them a wide variety of ways that they can enjoy animals and yet it is also therapeutic for them.

"Where do our animals come from?" you might ask... We rescue and rehabilitate unwanted or "problem" equines from all over the state of Ohio. We get them healthy then teach them manors and give them new jobs and a purpose suited to their individual personality, condition and breed. Our best therapy animals know what it's like to have been abused or neglected. They empathize with our hurting families and relate in amazing ways to help them.

Our ponies also make appearances at vacation bible schools, parades, churches, civic organizations and family festivals throughout the state of Ohio.
