How did we get started?


HAIEA (Human Animal Interaction and Educational Advocates) was proudly founded by Kevin and Cathy Smith in 2015. With experience owning and operating their own farm for 10 years, they decided to open it up to the community in 2005 for education and fun for children and families. The farm has a large variety of animals that live with them such as emus, kangaroos and wallabies.




Today HAIEA’s goal is educate and improve the lives of people by using positive and healthy interactions with animals.

Our Mission is To bring healing and joy to kids and adults through educational and therapeutic live-animal interaction.
