The historic General Israel Putnam Farm uses 21st century methods. The farm is an integral part of the TLC Rolling Ridge Residential and Country Day School program. Since 1986, students have the option to participate in Farm visits: feed the animals, assist in farm’s sheep management. Students participate in the equestrian program. On weekends, residential staff and students assist in the care of the animals at the Farm. One aim of the farm program is to provide our students with authentic experiences with the veterinary of animals care and the enjoyment from a variety of animals: sheep, horses, chickens, ducks, goats, farm cat and dog.

We have a “PATH International” approved program that requires our Farm staff to be PATH certified instructors. We are members of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International, formerly known as NARHA. We provide equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) for individuals as well.

Our instructor is a PATH International certified Equine Specialist. Activities include team building and enhancement skills for the benefit of animals and daily recreational use.
