We Believe in the Transformative Power of Nature

Our therapeutic farming for addiction program is designed to foster healing and personal growth through hands-on farming experiences

Why Therapeutic Farming?

Therapeutic farming is more than just an innovative approach to addiction recovery; it’s a way to reconnect with the world around us, rebuild lives, and cultivate hope. Here’s how our program makes a difference:


Holistic Healing

Our therapeutic farming program integrates physical, emotional, and psychological healing. Engaging in farm activities, from planting seeds to harvesting crops, helps individuals develop a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. Working with animals teaches empathy and compassion, creating a nurturing environment where recovery can flourish.


Building Community

At Ranch House Recovery, we emphasize the importance of community. Therapeutic farming brings people together, fostering teamwork and mutual support. Our participants form strong bonds as they work side by side, sharing experiences and encouraging one another on their journey to recovery.


Skill Development

Therapeutic farming provides practical skills that extend beyond the farm. Participants learn about sustainable agriculture, animal husbandry, and land stewardship. These skills not only aid in recovery but also offer valuable life skills that can be applied in various aspects of life and future employment opportunities.


Emotional Resilience

Working with nature has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Our serene farm setting provides a peaceful retreat where individuals can reflect, meditate, and heal. The routine and rhythm of farm life offer a stable foundation for rebuilding emotional resilience and self-esteem.

A Day in the Life

Each day at Ranch House Recovery is structured yet flexible, allowing participants to engage in a variety of farming activities. Mornings might start with feeding animals and tending to the gardens, followed by group therapy sessions and individual counseling. Afternoons could include planting, harvesting, or learning about sustainable farming practices. Evenings are a time for reflection, community meals, and relaxation.

Success Stories

Our therapeutic farming program has changed countless lives. Participants leave our program with a renewed sense of purpose, equipped with the skills and confidence needed to lead fulfilling, sober lives.

“My time at Ranch House Recovery has helped me to clear the lenses I see myself through. I have been given the time and support I needed to forgive myself, be gentle with myself, and truly get the healing I was so badly needing.”

Josh A.

“The Ranch has taught me how to live. I’ve learned to practice the 12 step principles. I have structure and routine. I work like a normal person. Here we grow and learn at our own rate. If I’m having a bad day, my peers are here to support me.”

Caleb A.

“Ranch House Recovery was hands down the most powerful, genuine experience I have had the fortune of walking through to date. From start to finish the whole process felt very natural and the principles I learned in ranch house, not only in the 12 steps, but how to be a more productive, better person have carried over into my daily recovery life, and continue to carry more weight with each day.”
