Welcome to Windy Acres Farm!

Home to Animals as Natural Therapy, Windy Acres is a 5-acre, 100-year-old farm located in Bellingham, WA. Nestled at the base of King Mountain, Windy Acres enjoys 360 degree views of beautiful Whatcom County, with Mount Baker directly to the east.

In its “hay” day, Windy Acres was one of Whatcom County’s largest dairy farms, producing most of the milk for the area. At that time, the property encompassed surrounding fields for grazing, occupying nearly the entire valley. Visitors can still see the remains of two large grain silos on the farm, now serving as rabbit play pens! A number of other structures onsite retain original architecture, which lends the farm its old-fashioned, rustic appeal.

Executive Director Sonja Wingard and her family have lived on the property for over 30 years, and still share the grounds with the non-profit. The farm is home to 13 horses, 3 goats, 1 llama, 2 dogs, 9 rabbits, 1 barn cat, a turkey, and countless chickens, but also regularly sees wild visitors (fox, deer, eagle, hawk, rabbit, & coyote). Visitors and participants alike are afforded a secluded, peaceful place to heal and grow, as Windy Acres sits 3/4 mile off the main road.

We invite you to visit the farm & learn about our work. Please contact us to arrange a tour (all visits must be approved in advance).
