Neshafarm is home to over 65 different types of animals including; horses, goats, Jacob sheep, emus, rabbits, ducks and swans to name a few. Our chicken coop houses over a dozen unique species from across the globe and features an incubation center to care for hatchlings.
Our 1,500 sq. ft. outdoor aviary provides shelter and protection for over 20 species of exotic birds including toucans and parrots and is a welcome sanctuary for local birds under duress, or those not receiving proper care by others. Automated feeding and hydration systems inside our aviary ensure all our birds are properly nourished and maintained.
When they aren’t running free, our 4 horses are housed in a brand new, modern paddock that is climate controlled and has an automated feed system. All of our horses are trained in our full-sized dressage arena (100’x200’) where we have established a functional, safe, sanitary and durable controlled environment for riding and training.
