To provide a sustainable water supply to the therapy animals and fields from a nearby stream

We're still collecting donations

On the 15th June 2020 we'd raised £800 with 18 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Greenhaven started in business at the beginning of February 2020 just before the COVID19 Pandemic arrived in this country and we have been unable to officially open to the public. With the problems we have had on the land since the floods over the winter and now with the drought we are experiencing, the land has suffered immensely which is affecting the growth of grass needed to feed our animals

The money from this crowdfunding will initially enable us to purchase a water pump, associated pipe work and storage tank to enable water to be pumped up into the top fields and the land around the farm to help the grass to grow to feed the animals under any climatic condition. We are on our way to raising these funds with the help of our supporters but we not there yet and would love your help.

Our New Arrivals

Odin with mum                  Melvin, Celeste & Heidi   Luke

Up-dates on our babies 09/06/2020

Odin is our first cria born this year. He is still too young to be a therapy animal but if you adopted him you can be involved in his training by coming and walking with him or viewing his progress on video. He is already showing signs of enjoying human interaction. He has excellent genetics and has a ultra soft fleece and we have high hopes for him to be our premium herd sire.

Bonnie is a lovely lamb and is looking to be adopted.  She loves being around children and looks for a rub on her face when she comes up to you. She enjoys her lamb nuts and will let you feed from your hand. Bonnie is going to make a wonderful therapy companion.

ONE OF OUR TINY HOMES                                                                                           Have you ever wanted to live clutter free in a space that provides you with everything you need. We would like to afford you the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of city or town life to come to the beautiful countryside at the gateway to the highlands for the ultimate experience of trying life in one of our tiny homes. Come and have a look inside.


Do you fancy trying something a little different?  How about helping us to build shelters for our animals? Here is the first one we have attempted by recycling pallets and an old shed.  All part of the experience of life at Greenhaven Ecology Centre.


Greenhaven Ecology Centre is a family run centre that has been set up to help people with mental health issues and emotional trauma; combining a wellness centre and ecology centre for health wellbeing and sustainable living.  Our aim is to provide an environment where people can come and volunteer their time to help set up this ecological project as well as providing a safe haven for those that need support. The centre is developing a model of sustainable living in all aspects of life as we will grow our own food, bringing water off the land to use with our animals and in our tiny homes and enable us to come off grid. 

Your support now can help us to help our therapy animals.
