Our Farm

Just fifteen minutes from downtown Bellingham, ANT’s farm sits on ten quiet acres graciously leased to ANT by a local family.

The property provides a landscape rich with opportunity for ANT: two barns, 10 acres for grazing with several fenced paddocks, ten private stalls, plus room for programming office space on site. The farm is home to a herd of horses, goats, mule, rabbits, a barn cat, chickens and a dog, and regularly sees wild visitors (fox, deer, eagle, hawk, rabbit, & coyote). It is a peaceful place for our human & animal staff to practice their healing work.

Lhaq’temish Land Acknowledgement

 We, Animals as Natural Therapy, acknowledge we are residing on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Lummi People. The Lummi People are the original inhabitants of Washington’s northernmost coast and southern British Columbia. They lived in villages throughout this territory and continue to have an ongoing relationship with these areas. Since Time Immemorial they have celebrated life on their land, water ways and on the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of their People to perpetuate their way of life. Please join us in taking a moment of silence as we honor their ancestors and as we acknowledge the past, present and future Lummi People as the original inhabitants of this land.
