What You'll See at the Farm

Green Chimneys is home to over 300 animals and birds, from the familiar to the exotic to the endangered. Explore the Sam and Myra Ross Farm & Wildlife Center and meet the animals who are also educators, therapists and friends to our school students!

  • The Teaching Barn houses most of the domestic farm animals and is surrounded by scenic outdoor paddocks, a large chicken coop, and pens for the pigs.
  • The Horse Barn is home to numerous equine breeds, as well as a pair of Bactrian camels, all of whom spend the majority of their time outside.
  • The Wildlife Center is situated all along a winding path through a wooded area, providing a more familiar habitat to its residents who can no longer live in the wild.  About wildlife rehabilitation
