A Rural
Recovery Program

Blanchet Farm’s residential recovery program is a one-of-a-kind rural facility located in beautiful Oregon.

Blanchet Farm
Residential Program

 

Blanchet Farm’s residential recovery program is located in Yamhill County, Oregon. Its goal is to help men with substance addiction build sobriety, self-worth, and relearn 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 another chance for men who have tried other more traditional recovery programs. What’s more, the farm is free to all thanks to compassionate donors.
