A Therapeutic Environment of Plants & Animals, for all in Need
Chatham County, N.C.
We currently offer off-site (your place) Therapeutic Horticulture Programs. We are hopeful to begin on-site (our place) Therapeutic Horticulture and Animal-Assisted Activities in the near future!
We are so excited to share our passion of plants, animals, and the beauty and wonderment of nature!
Our Farm was established in 2019. We are working hard building infrastructure and programming.
Please refer to the tabs at the top of the page to see the highlights of the property (Tour the Farm) and programs we will be offering (What We Do).
This website is being updated as Surcee Farm grows so we hope you will check-in throughout the coming months to see how things are progressing!
Where will you grow today?
