Country Ark Farm festivities

Indian blue peacocks normally inhabit open forests near streams in Sri Lanka and India. They are the largest member of the pheasant family and can live up to 30 years in captivity. Males display their colorful tails to attract mates.

An interesting collection of exotic and domestic animals were featured at a recent Open Farm Day at Country Ark Farm (CAF) near Milford, PA. Run by the Ciancitto family and a group of volunteers for the past 23 years, the non-profit foundation provides recreational, pet and art therapy experiences for mentally, emotionally and physically challenged children and adults. CAF is housed on a 26-acre property which is home to an assortment of well-socialized animals that have been hand-raised for the various programs offered.

CAF relies on the financial support of local foundations, businesses and individuals. Donations are most welcome and items such as towels, cat food and dog food are always needed. Read more about CAF in The River Reporter at bit.ly/KwRd3a or visit www.countryarkfarm.org for more information.
