about danny’s farm
Danny’s Farm was founded by former Los Angeles Dodger Pitcher and current pitching coach for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Jim Gott and his wife Cathy in 2007, in honor of their son Danny, who is diagnosed with Autism. As a child, Danny was drawn to farm animals and out of his continued affinity to them, Danny’s Farm was formed.
Danny’s Farm offers a safe and nurturing working farm and social environment for children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. Our mission is two fold – to provide meaningful employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities and to help them reach their fullest potential by developing special skills through their work and mentoring; and to serve children ages 5-17 years old on the Autistic Spectrum, by providing behavioral and social experiences through an individualized Specialty Autism Program.
"I urge you to support the unique work of Danny's Farm. This project is one of the best animal sensitivity programs I've come across."
- Alec Baldwin
