Support the Animals

The animals, as part of a Care Farm, love to get as much as they give!
Here are some ways, snackies or items that the animals here at Grateful Acres, would be grateful to receive. If you choose to contribute anything to the farm, please be sure to include a bit about you, even if it’s just your name, so that we can thank you!


Need to get rid of the real tree after Christmas time? Our goats would love a tree treat!
Contact us to drop off your living Christmas tree after the holidays!

Straw & Hay

Straw & Hay are staples on a farm. Straw is cleared out and composted daily for clean & fresh bedding. Hay, particularly Timothy Hay (aka the ‘good stuff’) offers great nutrition as part of almost every animal’s diet!


Bring us your pumpkins! The health benefits of pumpkins for the animals is fantastic! Contact us to drop off your whole pumpkins or non-treated, non-molded carved pumpkins.


As a nonprofit care farm, we are a donation-based operation! Donations go towards the feed, shelter, maintenance and health care of the animals!

IMPORTANT: Please Note

Though most of our animals are loved rescues, we are not a rescue farm.
Our hearts go out to those animals in need and we truly wish we could take them all! We carefully weigh and consider all factors prior to taking in any rescues.
At this time, we are focusing on acclimating our recent rescues and growing the aspects to promote Care Farming.

-Do not abandon animals at the farm-

Visits and Volunteers

We offer the opportunity to visit the farm, to utilize it’s resources and (whether independently or supported) promote overall health, mental health, and well-being. We also offer opportunities for those looking for a more hands on “therapy” through volunteering! There is a lot that can be gained from hands in the dirt and taking care of the animals, farm and garden…while taking care of yourself!
