to True Buddy Farms – Home of Luv A Lamb

The True Buddy Therapeutic Sheep Club started in Papillion, Nebraska in the summer of 2009 with my herd of 4-H kids and our sheep.  At our county and state fair, we noticed how special needs children and medically challenged children were drawn to our sheep and how the sheep responded to these gifted individuals.   True Buddy Farms - Home of Luv A Lamb, Inc. was established in 2010.  We are non-profit 501c3.  The success and growth of our programs depend on individual donations and corporate sponsorships. 
 
Our mission is to encourage and teach life skills to youth and adults through animal therapy and recreational farm work.  Our focus is to enhance therapies for youth and adults with specials needs and to build relationships among youth in our community.  We work closely with Sarpy/Douglas 4H and several other community programs.

True Buddy Farms – Home of Luv A Lamb received a grant from the Midlands Community Foundation for $13,500.00. Words cannot express how honored and incredibly excited we are to have been given this generous gift. We are deeply grateful to the Midlands Community Foundation for believing in our young nonprofit and our ever-growing programs!

Midlands Community Foundation is helping us grow a farm with a purpose and without boundaries, a farm of equal opportunities for all and where everyone is valued. The funds will be used to refurbish the livestock building donated by Dr. Jernigan of Ralston Veterinary Clinic. Our plans include a handicapped accessible bathroom, community center, indoor arena for our therapy sheep sessions, and education room.

There were many other well-deserving nonprofits that received funds as well.
We were humbled to be amongst so many organizations giving back to the Sarpy and Cass County communities.

Thank EWE Midlands Community Foundation!!


  Thank EWE to DR. JERNIGAN of Ralston Veterinary for Donating a Livestock Building to TRUE BUDDY FARMS – HOME OF LUV A LAMB. The donation of the building started our path to providing an on-site facility for our activities. This was a huge goal and accomplishment. With the help of many amazing businesses and people, we are making the improvement necessary to have a year-round facility that is handicapped accessible and environmentally safe for our True Buddies. 

 
 


 
  Thank EWE to CONSOLIDATED CONCRETE for Helping Us Make TRUE BUDDY FARMS – HOMEOF LUV A LAMB a Farm Without Boundaries! Randy Starks donated a generous amount of concrete for the middle and north sections of our new building making it wheelchair accessible and Charlie worked many countless hours pouring concrete so we would be ready for our first Pumpkin Festival. 

 

 
     
Emily with Bahama Mama and Cheetah Girl Welcome EWE to True Buddy Farms
Home of Luv A Lamb!

   

Introducing our first National Lil Spokesperson.........Emily Koesters!!!


8 year old Emily Koesters of Nebraska has a very serious disease calledSchimke Immuno-osseous Dysplasia,
a fatal, genetic dwarfism. Her parents are desperate to get national attention for this rare disease, to hopefully
find funding of 3 million dollars for a drug that would help their daughter and other Little Giants live longer!
We have told Emily's parents we will do our part to help, every little bit counts!
To learn more about Emily, see our
True Buddy Page.
