LIZ HURLBURT OF Second Chance Farm gets a hug from Stan and Dorothy Zbornak, two mini donkeys named after characters from the TV show “Golden Girls.” Since launching Second Chance Farm in Addison this summer, Liz and her husband, Noah, have acquired more than 100 animals, many of which are considered endangered. Every animal on the farm has a name and a story.

ADDISON — A lot has happened in the six months since Liz and Noah Hurlburt first entertained the idea of having a farm.
They got married, purchased 34 acres near Lake Champlain in Addison, moved their family down from Williston, built fences and stalls, opened a catering business and acquired more than 100 animals.
“We were merging our families — six kids and five dogs — and so we thought ... space,” said Noah, a science teacher who grew up in rural Vermont. “And a sense of place. There’s a quality of life that comes with that, which is really important.”
