Creating Pathways Farms is a peaceful property: many visitors have commented on how it feels as if they are far away, similar to an “up north” setting, yet they are only moments away from urban and suburban communities. CPF is 20 acres of wooded, natural space that has been described by some as what southeastern Wisconsin looked like 100 years ago. There are stands of mature trees, a spring fed pond with bullfrogs, turtles and a variety of fish, a lookout over a winding creek, and a system of trails winding through the property.
The horses living here are an integral part of the farm and our mission. They offer a majestic, powerful and beautiful presence and are a highlight for visitors to interact with and observe.
The work of the farm is based in offering a peaceful, safe setting for those who come here for our services. Those services are offered by our highly trained and experienced staff and include Equine Assisted Growth and Learning and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. The farm name comes from the main work we engaged in when first taking on stewardship of the farm. We began to create a system of paths to open access to all areas of the land. In “creating pathways” we realized how much we were learning and growing. We decided the name would be the invitation to those who come here to “create their own pathway” through life.
Our nature setting is particularly well-suited to opportunities for personal reflection and stress reduction. You are invited to step away from your busy lifestyle and create space for yourself. One of our goals is to promote peace and calm so as to allow the opportunity to rest, restore and revitalize. We offer events that relate to promoting personal learning, inner work and formation of skills to create a more balanced life. Our work is tailored to the specific needs of the individuals, families or groups that seek our services, based on our collaboration with you. We look forward to sharing the beauty of CPF with you!
