Hollywood-Style Premier of the DONKumentary

Join ERN on April 20th for a Hollywood Style Premiere Party of ERN's Donkumentary Film at Peirce Farm in Topsfield. The DONKumentary is not the only exciting news to celebrate.  Peirce Farm at Witch Hill has offered to partner with the Equine Rescue Network to allow us to use their 10 acre field as an Equine Sanctuary for retired Amish Mules, Donkeys and Horses.  ERN will fill the field at Peirce farm with equines who have worked hard all their lives and deserve a soft landing for their 'senior years.' BUT WAIT - There's more:  Cultivate will then use the equines at Peirce farm for local adolescent and adult for their recognized 'Farm-Based Therapy' using the EAGALA model! Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) is an international non-profit organization that was founded in 1999. Currently, there are over 500 EAGALA certified programs located in 41 countries around the world.   Cultivate's certified EAGALA program offers outpatient program services for adolescents and adults out of a farm in Bolton, MA.   Using the new location at Peirce Farm, certified EAGALA therapists will heal both humans and equines from fear, despair, abandonment, or pain.  Peirce Farm will be a place of mutual growth and healing for both humans and horses.  This fabulously fun evening will include dinner, music and some special guest. CAN'T MAKE IT BUT STILL WANT TO SUPPORT US?  JOIN OUR WALL!  Donate at www.EquineRescueNetwork.com.  Add "JOIN THE WALL" in the memo and your name will appear on the Donor Wall on April 20th.

About Topsfield, MA
Topsfield Massachusetts is an area of rolling hills and meandering streams and has some of the highest land in Essex County. Topsfield has a rural nature and contains a typical New England town common.

The town is home to many acres of protected land and trails which includes Bradley Palmer State Park. It is an excellent choice for hiking and biking in the spring and summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Topsfield also has plenty of agricultural land and hosts the Topsfield Fair.

The Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest agricultural fair established in 1818 and held every October during harvest time. The Fair is chock full of agricultural exhibits as well as homemade baked goods and farm animals. There is also a largest pumpkin contest-always the most popular exhibit. It also has plenty for the kids including great stuff to eat and also a midway loaded with amusement park rides and games and a parade. The Topsfield Fair is a fun time for everyone and well worth the price of admission. Plan to spend a day there next October-you will be glad you did.
