Our Farm

High Country Animal overlooking the Mad River Valley of Vermont is a small farm with the idea that it can have the same high quality of a big farm, but be small enough to provide individual care to its animals. We believe that we have achieved this balance. We started as a small alpaca farm that has opened its doors to give many animals their forever home. High Country Animals is now a non-profit committed to improving the lives of children through farm-based educational programs. We strive through farm based programs to improve one’s emotional, mental and physical health. We would love to show you our alpacas, ponies, rabbits and chickens and welcome farm visitors on an appointment basis.

Our Programs

Riding Lessons
