The Little Farm on the Hill is a therapeutic program designed to engage patients in horticulture and animal therapies to assist in their overall treatment goals. The program was re-established in 2020 at the Osawatomie State Hospital and currently consists of chickens, a bunny, two greenhouses, and will be adding goats soon. Come and visit our greenhouse to buy plants seeded by patients or eggs laid by our hens and learn more about the rich history behind the hospital and the future of the program!

On Farm Tour weekend, you can expect: We will have ambassadors (staff) with printed and verbal information on the hospital and program, chickens to be viewed or held with coloring sheets for kids to color and take home, plants and eggs available to buy, picnic area to utilize.
