Although Green Acres Farm has only been in existence for a few years, it is fast becoming known as a place to find peace for the many animals that call it home as well as for the many visitors that have stumbled upon it. There is something about this place that draws you in and finds a place in your heart.

Becky Green, who owns the farm with her husband Dan, is more than happy to show you around the farmstead sharing story after story of how many of the animals came to be a part of her family. Some were rescued from neglect while others were given to her. Even more fascinating are the accounts of how material goods and much needed supplies have been donated to the farm often by complete strangers. Becky's desire is to share her love of animals with kids, teens and adults. She welcomes individuals and groups to visit the farm to help educate them about the many aspects of farm life. Visitors look forward to coming back again and again to enjoy this truly amazing place.
