35K For Hay

On September 19th we launched our hay fundraiser with a goal of raising $35,000 by January 1st 🚜🌾🧑🏼‍🌾

Our horses are vital members of our organization allowing us to provide our Equine Assisted Services. We would not be a program without them! Please help us purchase hay to keep their bellies full for the year.

We have a generous donor who is willing to match the first 10k. That means your donation will go twice as far!

Meet the gelding paddock. The boys of the farm!

Charlie, Dash, Thomas and Raven all love to eat their hay.

Here is the breakdown of their hay costs. Donate just $4 to feed a horse for a day, or contribute to their yearly hay intake. Any amount is appreciated and your donations go twice as far with our donor match.

“Farming isn’t for everyone, but hay,
it’s in my jeans.”

If you’ve ever had the joy of doing hay with us at LWF, you know exactly what I mean! For many people in New England, the cool, wet weather this summer ruined some beach days. But for hay farmers, it ruined a whole economy. Supply was low, so prices were high. Our current fundraising campaign is focused on raising money for hay. Every donation is tax deductible!

Thank you for contributing. We are an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Code; EIN 92-2399089.

LWF-EAS is offered to the public throughout Southern Maine. We serve individuals with special needs, public and private school groups, families, team building for employers, veterans organizations, and outpatient rehabilitation programs. Research suggests that equine assisted services can be effective in reducing symptoms of various mental health conditions, improving emotional regulation, and increasing overall well-being. Additionally, working with horses can provide individuals with a sense of purpose and connection to nature, which can be beneficial for mental and emotional health.

Events & Camps

2023 Summer Camp

Back by popular demand…Living Wells Farm Summer Camp!

For seven years Living Wells Farm has hosted summer day camps for the greater Wells/Ogunquit/Kennebunk communities. Our farm has provided a natural backdrop for outdoor activities and a horse-centric focus. This summer, your child will focus on horsemanship and riding skills. We will learn both on the ground and in the saddle, and gain an appreciation for the care horses require. All levels of rider are welcome, from students who have been riding for years to students who have never been on a horse before.

This will open in a new tab.  The LWF website looks and feels just like this one for our Equine Services program.  Sorry for this hassle in the short term while we transition to a new structure for our programs.

Programs & Services

Living Wells Farm Equine Assisted Services are provided on a property that is a lush, hidden gem tucked among the trees only minutes from Route 1 and the Wells & Ogunquit beaches.  Our property directly connects to miles of trails on conservation land, just steps away from the barn.
