Davy's TherAppy Farm, Inc.
Davy's TherAppy Farm, Inc. (DTF), where a hoof can heal a heart and reboot your soul! The primary goal of our non-medical therapy farm is to provide guests with a safe space to promote the rejuvenation of overall well-being with improvements to mental, behavioral, and physical health.
Please understand that DTF is not a petting zoo and a reservation is needed before visiting the property to offer a quiet relaxing environment for individuals of all ages to benefit from "Appointments with Purpose" which are guided sessions with our animal therapists.
Current residents consist of mini horses, including our founder, Davy the Appaloosa (Appy), a Chincoteague Pony, a steer, goats, pigs, guinea pigs, and a dog.
Groundwork only, the level of interaction is your choice or you can simply sit in the calming presence of your new furry friends. Our farm does not have a diagnosis requirement because everyone is welcome! Due to insurance reasons all adult guests must present photo identification, acknowledge our safety rules and sign a waiver.
No entrance fee is required but donations are greatly appreciated! DTF is 100% volunteer-run, recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is conveniently located off Route 13 in New Church, VA. Please contact us today to plan your personalized visit!
