Apifera Farm is home to artist Katherine Dunn and landscaper Martyn Dunn. Located in mid coast Maine, Apifera takes in needy animals but also shares them with elder people. They are a 501[c]. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
This is Lydia Rose also known lovingly as The Teapot.
She's short and stout but you can't pour her out. We took her on as her former home could not care for her anymore. She's a character and a firecracker at age 18. We will work with her and integrate her into our therapy work.
From our humble little Maine home to yours, we send you PEACE this season. We send you gratitude for helping us in our first official year as a non profit. We did so much, with your help-thank you. And there is so much more to come, and I will share our plans and dreams after the new year. But today, Martyn and I want to thank you for your donations and support. We are grateful to live this life, and your help allows us to continue our work with the animals and elders. I hope you have a season of kindness, hope, warmth and love.
Through support of donations, this year we built a barn addition, took on ducks, a goose, an elder pony, three more elder goats, Ollie the bottle baby in need, and many elder cats...all the while caring for the other elders in our charge. We also began on site visits for our elder people-who come and commune with the animals. And in 2019?
We are already building a large shade hut so our elder guests can be out of sun when they visit
Woodland Walks with The Teapot-a way to not only help Lydia Rose the new pony feel needed, but a way for people to be in nature with equine therapy
More elder homes to visit for Opie and Ollie
I hope to incorporate drawing sessions amongst the animals for healing visits
Coming next year- the book about White Dog, told from his perspective, of how he arrived at Apifera in a shroud of mystery, and then continued on to Maine where his work expanded and his presence resonates with many.
