I just recently decided to apply for a therapy pet certificate for my miniature lop rabbit "Jack". Apparently, in some states rabbits are considered farm animals. It has surprised me how much effort (and money) it takes to get certified. As soon as we have permission we will be visiting a state treatment center for people with mental illnesses. I thought of this idea when I heard about a farm that gave part of their crop to a food pantry. There are lots of ways you can use your small farm to make a difference, if you raise turkeys or chickens you could donate one to a homeless shelter for a holiday dinner or if you had goats, sheep, or ponies you could offer to host a petting zoo for a charity event. The possibilities are endless.
