SVF Foundation's "Swiss Village" sits on 35 acres in Newport, Rhode Island with an adjacent 11 acre site which was formerly part of Hammersmith Farm. Among the 14 buildings that comprise the SVF site are exquisitely renovated animal facilities, a procedures laboratory, infirmary, workshops, offices and a large conference room.
Swiss Village was built in 1916 by Arthur Curtis James and was modeled on a Swiss Village from the Italian region of Switzerland. The renovation of Swiss Village was completed in 2002, at which time SVF Foundation commenced operations.
SVF Foundation, led by a Board of Trustees, is collaborating with Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University to help protect the world's food supply by preserving rare and endangered breeds of livestock.
