Dragonfly Acres is a unique mini farmstead that aims to educate visitors and build compassion for animals through personalized interactions, events, and activities. Five acres of farmland, which located on our family’s personal property in Odenton, allows us to offer individualized programs and events for anyone who has a love of animals, a thirst for knowledge, and perhaps, are not afraid to get their boots a little muddy!
Thirty-seven animals call this farm ‘home’, including 3 ducks, 19 chickens, 1 horse, 1 pony, 1 donkey, 3 pigs, 4 goats and 2 bunnies. Visitors can meet each individual animal and hear their stories at one of Dragonfly Acres’ multiple program offerings, including farm tours, birthday parties, and other special and seasonal events. Here at Dragonfly Acres, we are strong advocates of agricultural education to empower everyone to make better choices, practice compassion, understand farm animal care, and develop empathy for all beings.
All proceeds from public and private events go towards our animals’ care, which can include veterinary and dental costs, medications, food, and enrichment. Remaining funds are allocated to farm
maintenance and improvements.
Since opening our farm to the public in 2022, we have welcomed more than 1,000 people to experience and interact with our farm animals and understand them as individuals. We look forward to welcoming all visitors (new and returning alike!) to Dragonfly Acres! Ready to interact with the wonderful farm animals who share our home and educate by experience.
