In this research we tried to find answers to the next relevant questions: what are the needs and requirements of: 1) farm animals on care farms, 2) clients with ASD (Autism spectrum disorders) with regard to Animal-assisted Interventions on care farms, and 3) care farmers with regard to using farm animals in care services. The (indicative) requirements give insight into how farm animals can be optimally used for care purposes from different perspectives and what the implications are for, among other things, farm management and agricultural production. Three important parts are: the characteristics of farm animals, management and housing systems.
