STRATHALBYN CARE FARM
Animal Assisted Interventions Care Farm
and Training Centre
Strathalbyn Centre and Care Farm
Is a place where people of all ages and abilities come together to reconnect to the earth,
animals, nature and themselves.
Plants and animals live in harmony with nature. All our farmed animals have been socialized
as therapy animals, and will get to live natural lives and to express their natural behaviours.
We welcome our industry partners and people to come and heal by participating in Animal
Assisted Interventions or farm activities in whatever way they can. The very act of
participating, being included, being in nature, and having a meaningful visit or task to
accomplish can be incredibly healing. We want to offer this to children, youth, seniors, and
people of all ages recovering from physical illness, mental health concerns and many other
