Sunny Knoll Farm Alpacas
We, at Sunny Knoll Farm Alpacas, are the first alpaca farm in the region to offer alpaca assisted therapy. Owner, Jennifer Baum is duly certified through University of New Hampshire and Nationally recognized Pet Partners in Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). She has taken this comprehensive knowledge and applied it to the alpacas on the farm.
The unique disposition of alpacas makes them wonderful options in AAT. Their ability to communicate non-verbally encourages the exploration of unique ways to express one's self and develop new ways of social interaction. Their quiet nature makes them a wonderful match with children suffering from autism spectrum disorders and sensory oversensitivity. This is where Sunny Knoll Farm Alpacas program is focused, although the alpacas also visit nursing homes, hospitals & schools.
