Overview

Our Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 farm animals, horses and permanently injured or imprinted wildlife. You're invited to meet the wonderful animals who play a vital role here. Visit us on weekends from 10am - 3pm for free self-guided tours. 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.

Hi Mitzy: We do not have food vendors onsite all throughout the year. Should you plan to visit our Farm & Wildlife Center on the weekends, please know there are plenty of restaurants in the area.
