Introducing The Farm! Touch My Heart has built an outdoor place where our friends with special needs can visit, unwind, and enjoy the benefits of our therapy chickens.
In this video, Wendy takes you on a tour through the farm prototype as you meet some chickens along the way.

In this video, Rick gives an update on The Farm and previews what is to come.
…if there were a place not too far away that was peaceful, healing, safe, beautiful, clean, inspiring, and welcoming to everyone.
…a peaceful place that takes you away from the busy chaos of life and soothes feelings of isolation.
…a healing place where you can clear your mind, breathe deeply, relax, and simply smile.
…a safe outdoor place that you can visit year-round, where you can step back into a simpler time and experience the joy of letting nature invite you in.
…a beautiful place where gardens overflow with seasonal blooms including sensory enriching edible herbs and vegetation.
…a clean place where you are invited to interact with small flocks of playful, friendly, therapeutic, backyard chickens.
…an inspiring place where you can expand your mind, dream, learn, and grow, just by being present.
…a welcoming place that embraces everyone, where no one is ever judged on ability, race, education, finances, age, etc. …EVER
There is no need to just imagine this place any longer. This place does exist, and you are welcome here.
