From the day Green Chimneys Farm for Little Folk opened in 1948, children have had the unique experience of interacting with and caring for animals. Green Chimneys continues to provide a dynamic, experiential learning environment with meaningful ways for people to connect with nature through the Farm & Wildlife Center.

The Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 farm animals, horses and permanently injured or imprinted wildlife. As a core component of Green Chimneys programming for children with special needs, the main criteria for each animal’s presence are that they thrive in the care at Green Chimneys and play a supportive role in educational and animal-assisted therapy programs for children. Horticulture is another a key aspect of the farm and students participate in gardening activities and vocational training in the Educational School Garden and at Boni-Bel, a multi-acre sustainable farm.

The Farm & Wildlife Center is also a public attraction, hosting thousands of visitors for enjoyable and educational farm tours during open weekend hours and favorite annual events such as Little Folks Farm Days, Fall Harvest Festival, and the spectacular Birds of Prey Day each June.
