Our Farm's Phase 2 Mission involves helping horses and humans heal together through a nurture and be nurtured philosophy. By partnering with local organizations that align with our mission, Our Farm will develop hands-on therapeutic programs using our horses to nurture neglected, abused, and at risk children & adults.
Our Farm's Phase 1 Mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and retrain at risk horses facing neglect, abuse and possible slaughter and provide them with the best opportunity for a permanent home with a lifetime of love and safety.

It is personal... it is a life long dream to combat animal cruelty while embracing our passion for horses. This is the reason we created Our Farm Equine Rescue (OFER). We are are a 501(c)3 nonprofit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization. We save horses from neglect, abuse, owner surrender, and feedlot auctions where they can end up going to slaughter. Our focus is local within Fairfield and Westchester Counties, however we extend our resources to other areas who have horses in immediate need of rescue.
