Our Programs

Our small groups, led by enthusiastic and skilled mentors, provide an environment for the development of self-confidence and self-worth within youth in a calm farm setting. Small groups develop a sense of bonding and address the need to belong. The animals and the beauty of nature provide a safe place for youth to develop a sense of trust.

What the youth say

The first day at the BBFY farm, I did something wrong. I felt bad, but it was like I could not control what I did. Well, there was this sharing circle in the Art studio, where the six of us sat. One of the kids had made a Talking Stick and the rule was the only one who could speak was the one holding the Talking Stick. When my turn came, I held the stick and I said that I was sorry for the mistake I made. They forgave me and that was so special. Then I was able to make good changes.
