If you’re a Front-Line Worker or First Responder looking for a safe, fun, and heart-warming way to interact with animals and explore the great outdoors, then look no further than Dreamcatcher™ Ranch! Our Rejuvenation Program began in the Spring of 2021 to give our Health Heroes a chance to decompress, destress, and rejuvenate with these FREE outdoor, and out of city, visits!
This program provides unique and extensive farm animal interactions in a tranquil, beautiful place to give these workers a chance to find reprieve and joy.
Time on the Land
Time on the Land allows families or individuals an opportunity to take part in a new adventure while getting out of the house or city! Visitors can check out our chicken coops, spend time visiting over the fence with rescued therapy farm animals, enjoy a picnic in the country, or walk in nature through our beautifully treed and trailed 40 acre property. Launched in the Spring of 2020, our Time on the Land program supports individuals and families struggling to find safe, fun, and engaging activities.
Time on the Land is offered for individuals and families to experience the great outdoors and interact with pleasant farm animals. The booking times are only available outside of Dreamcatcher™ client sessions and will involve the single households at a time.
