Located in beautiful Powell, Tennessee, Magnolia Harbor Carefarm cultivates a space in which grieving human hearts receive compassion, connection, and community. We are also a sanctuary for animals—both domestic and farm—that have been rescued from trauma, abuse, and neglect to live out the rest of their lives in a safe space. We are dedicated to creating a space in which therapy expands beyond the -- four walls of a typical office -- to a space in which clients can move their bodies and express the energy of their grief and trauma when there are no words for what they have experienced.

Our Carefarm

Led by Dr. Bree Conklin, the mission of Magnolia Harbor Carefarm is two-fold: to cultivate community and provide integrative, innovative therapeutic services for those who have experienced trauma or a traumatic loss; and, second, to provide sanctuary for animals rescued from abuse, neglect, and abandonment to live out the rest of their lives in a loving, compassionate, safe space. Magnolia Harbor Carefarm has a unique focus on developing and utilizing the nexus between animal welfare and human healing as we recognize the powerful healing that happens within the connection between humans and animals. The rescued animals within our sanctuary serve as facilitators of therapeutic process of our human clients.

About Us

Our Family

Kiwi and Caleb were the first equine friends to join our carefarm family. Upon his initial rescue, Caleb was emaciated, injured, and in a kill pen at a horse auction. Kiwi was rounded up in connection with a Bureau of Land Management project. During the round up, Kiwi was separated from his mother at a very young age. He also sustained injuries to his face that required multiple reconstructive surgeries.

Both Kiwi and Caleb were originally rescued by our dear friend Esther Roberts of the former Starlight Farm Animal Sanctuary. They met at the rescue and have been buddies from day one! Kiwi and Caleb are a perfect fit to hold space for the hurting hearts of humans and love nothing more than to cuddle with human friends.

Kiwi and Caleb

Magnolia and Cedar are a bonded pair of siblings who needed a new home and we wanted to keep their little family together. Cedar is a snuggle buddy who loves to interact with most any human friend who is willing to chat and cuddle--and he may just try to style your hair with a professional goat hair cut nibble or two. Magnolia is a sassy girl and is the diva of the barn animals. She is full of curiosity and insists on knowing the happenings of all pasture activity. 

Magnolia and Cedar

Petey and Petunia are a bonded brother and sister pair originally rescued by a local horse rescue. When picking up some starving horses, the rescue found Petey and Petunia, who were then 5 weeks of age, in a small pen with no access to food or water and their mom nowhere in sight. Our friends at Fabled Farms Rescue and Sanctuary cared for them until they were old enough to be adopted into our sanctuary.

Petunia sings an opera when she thinks it is time for dinner! Petey greets all friends with cute piggy noises and, though a bit shy at first, warms up and loves a good back scratch. 

Petey and Petnunia

Crackerjack and Clyde became fast friends when originally rescued by our friends at Fabled Farms Rescue and Sanctuary. Clyde is a 32-year-old mini-horse who was sold at several auctions. Unconditional love, belonging, and safety were unknown to him. Cracker Jack is a 2-year-old standard donkey who was unhandled and unfamiliar with human interaction. They are the best of friends and will only know love, compassion, and belonging for the rest of their lives. 

Crackerjack and Clyde


Violet and Victor were rescued by our friends at Fabled Farms Rescue and Sanctuary. Both were emaciated, covered in manure, and freezing when originally rescued. Violet is a timid, sweet, steadfast, and loyal friend. Victor bounced back with gusto and is the self-proclaimed mayor and resident greeter of the farm! 

Violet and Victor

Walnut Carnuchi (Wally) and Dogwood (Woody)  are bonded brothers who came to us after their mother rejected them. These goofballs are the first to greet human friends and love to snuggle for anyone who is willing to offer their lap (and would much prefer to be lap goats!)

Wally and Woody

Stella is a beautiful 15-year-old mare who came to us after she was diagnosed with kissing spine--a degenerative disease that will eventually be terminal. Our dear friend asked if we would allow Stella to join our sanctuary to enjoy flat, soft pastures as long as her pain-level would allow. She is the sweetest and sassiest girl. 

Stella

Juniper, Hazelnut, and Maple are a bonded trio that joined our sanctuary after their original owners passed from COVID within a week of one another. These sweet goats were loved by, and provided much comfort to a human with Alzheimer's. This trio brings so much laughter and joy to our little herd! 

Juniper, Hazelnut and Maple

Jalapeno was rescued by our friends of East Tennessee Mini Horse and Donkey Rescue. He is a 9-month old standard donkey who needed a safe home. He is a sweet donkey who is quick to befriend most anyone with an apple treat!
