Blanchet Farm’s residential recovery program is a one-of-a-kind rural facility located in beautiful Oregon.
Meet Ross and Ron
Ross Sears and Ron Lovegreen manage the farm and support residents.
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, 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.

Help Rebuild the Facilities at Blanchet Farm
The Blanchet Farm Capital Campaign will raise critical funds to build a stronger future for our one-of-a-kind rural addiction recovery program. It will give us the ability to add trauma-informed spaces where the Yamhill County community can come together to hope and heal.

The farm offers a supportive place in a rural environment for men to share their personal struggles with each other. Most importantly, we listen without judgment. What’s more, all staff have lived experience with addiction and recovery.
In brief, we take a collaborative approach to recovery that ensures a person gets the services they need. In addition, we connect residents to mental and physical health care or support to find employment and housing.
