It’s baby chicken time at A Taste of Paradise Farm. The young people have been watching the incubator eagerly and several chicks have just hatched. It is a joy to watch the wonder and gentleness the young people show as they care for these new babies. These special experiences are why our farm is so successful in helping at-risk and disadvantaged youngsters to grow and thrive.

Baby goats are also in the spotlight! They are so soft to pat and funny to watch as they try to climb on things. Looking after the animals is one of the favourite activities on the farm and teaches basic farming skills as well as how to be responsible for those in your care. The general routine of the farm helps steady the young people and teaches them how to plan their day to accomplish necessary tasks. With the skills they learn, farming may even be part of their future one day.
