WHAT IS THE NUT FARM STORY ALL ABOUT?
We're blessed to call a 15-acre pecan orchard near Pensacola Florida our home — a comfortable privately-owned sanctuary to 100+ animals and a therapeutic destination open to the public. We have a particular passion to serve special needs families, people healing from mental and physical trauma, and seniors in need of fresh air. All are welcome here at our sanctuary — affectionately named the "nut farm" by our volunteers for obvious reasons!
Our YouTube channel features Todd, Ruby and Aaron's adventures raising and training horses, exotic peacocks, lambs, ducks, turtles, goats, curious chickens and so many more critters — often with special needs of their own!
Along with a growing band of volunteers and sponsors, Family Orchard Farms LLC and our 501c3 Nonprofit (in the process of forming) will host CDC-compliant "Nut Farm Field Days" on specific Saturdays during summer 2020 — open to the community on a first come first served basis (to limited the number of attendees due to social distancing and to preserve tranquility and balance with nature.)
If you have interest in joining us for a day at the farm or sponsoring a family to attend — click here to learn more.
Pandemic has changed everything about our plans for 2020 — but we're happy to say that social distancing is much easier outdoors at the Nut Farm! Come see for yourself and enjoy a break from quarantine. SAFETY NOTICE: CDC Social Distancing Guidelines are strictly enforced and all surfaces are sanitized multiple times each day. Face coverings are required for all attendees using common areas or participating in activities. Bandanas are available for sale for $5!

A place you can “just be!” 🌈
A place with a different tune. 🎼
A place where one can swing/climb/rock/listen themselves to another dimension. 💫
