Blanchet Farm
Residential Program


Blanchet Farm’s residential recovery program is located in Yamhill County, Oregon one hour outside Portland. Its goal is to help men with substance addiction build sobriety, and self-worth, and regain job skills by being responsible for the care of animals, gardens, meals, and facilities.

In short, the farm is successful at saving lives because it offers hands-on outdoor therapeutic work for men who have tried more traditional recovery programs. What’s more, the farm is free to all thanks to compassionate donors.
