Harvest Farm is a long-term addiction recovery program located in Wellington, CO.  We have 72 men living on our 209-acre farm.  A working farm, we raise livestock, have a large garden and offer a free thrift store that is open to our community.  Volunteers live in our cabin and work alongside our participants.  Each year, we partner with Sky Ranch to host volunteer groups for 3-5 days of service.  This is a special partnership that allows us the opportunity to meet folks from around the United States who love Jesus and want to make a difference in the lives of others.

Volunteers serve an important purpose on the Farm.  Not only do they help get our work done, they also provide a safe space for our men to share their stories.  Many of these men have never been heard or accepted, so talking with our volunteers is very useful in their recovery process.  Volunteers gain a greater understanding of addiction, grow in their faith, and have the chance to talk with and learn from people they may otherwise never speak to.

We love having Sky Ranch volunteers join us because they are always so enthusiastic!  Sky Ranch is a valuable community partner throughout the year and has hosted staff retreats and provided us with much-needed donations.  It’s a pleasure to work with them each year, and we look forward to partnering with Sky Ranch for many years to come!
