There is more to Hickory Hill Farm then saving horses! Much, much more!
My love for the horse directed me to Hickory Hill Farm several years ago but my love for helping people using horses has grown so much while being a part of this amazing nonprofit. It’s an amazing thing to watch a child’s eyes light up during a reading with rescue or a special needs child try and overcoming fear makes it worth It all. I am truly honored to be a part of something like this here in my hometown! My hope is that Hickory Hill Farms continues to grow so that more horses and people are saved and given a second chance at life!!

I have had the honor of volunteering at HHF for over a year and have been so blessed by this place! My favorite story has been about rescue horse, Diva. She came to us so scared and hurt with hooves curled up due to neglect. We worked with her everyday and Shea spent hours giving her all the love and care she needed. Months and months of continuous care has changed Diva into the most beautiful and sweet horse today! Shea has done the most wonderful job with her and the dedication we have had has really paid off. I see the love Diva has and I cherish the experience of seeing her transform! This rescue is the real deal!!

Hickory Hill Farm is such an rewarding organization to be a part of. The organization has been around for three years now. I really enjoy being a part of the outreach programs and events that are available. Seeing how the rescues interact with those in the community really is a special moment. The way the rescues are able to give back to the community while in the care of Hickory Hill Farm is truly remarkable.

Hickory Hill Farm is a great organization! It has been so fulfilling to work with an organization who is trying to better our community for our equine animals and children/ adults.

They want the best match when it comes to adopting out the animals so they won't ever be in another situation that brought them to us. Hickory Hill Farm is committed to the rescues no matter how long it takes to find the right home or if a rescue animal becomes a sanctuary animal they will always have the best care! #adoptdontshop #comevolunteerwithus #HHF

Hickory Hill Farm is an amazing non-profit that helps animals and people. The motto "Rescue, Play, Heal" applies to nearly every animal and person who comes in contact with HHF in some regard. As a volunteer & foster farm since HHF's inception, I will continue to support this small but mighty Middle TN non-profit as long as I am able.

The folks at Hickory Hill are the most caring and generous people. Their outreach to animals and the community is genuine and heart-felt. They provide so many quality services at no cost, yet their enthusiasm for education, healing, and complete restoration of people and animals is endless. No discouragement stops them or slows them down. No expenses or risks prevent them from taking responsibility for the provision of comfort and healing because they know it is their calling.

HHF is an organization I have watched from the beginning. They have saved and changed so many lives and completed so many families with the animals they have placed. They truly love and care about the animals they save and want the absolute BEST care and outcome for them all the same! No matter the story or lack of story they take in an animal and change its life for the better! I am so lucky to be able to volunteer for such an amazing and caring group of people.

Hickory Hill Farm is a very active organization that has a lot of outreach programs that benefit both the animals and the community. From kids camps to Reading with Rescues, farm field trips, you name it...we are involved in a little bit of everything (and that's on top of rescuing equines)!

I have really enjoyed my time being a volunteer for Hickory Hill Farm. Everyone works hard to rehabilitate the animals and provide them with a much better life than they came from. All animals receive vet care, shelter, food, and lots and LOTS of love! One of the things that absolutely blew me away as a volunteer was the amount of love that everyone has for the animals and for each other. You truly feel like a member of the family when you are part of this organization. I highly recommend this rescue to anyone looking to donate or volunteer their time!
