Son Valley Ranch
Surrounded by gently rolling pastures and forest areas, Son Valley Ranch is located on thirteen acres in Rutherford County, Tennessee. Home to horses, Pygmy goats, guinea hens, a flock of chickens, three farm dogs, and multiple barn cats, the ranch serves as a peaceful refuge and a safe place for children and adults alike to gather and enjoy life together. Ranch days are offered free of cost specifically for children or teenagers who have had difficult life experiences. Some of these may include foster care, homelessness, immigration, abuse, or physical or mental disabilities. Whatever the background, a day at the ranch gives these individuals a place to pause from life and offers them a chance to see hope in the days ahead.
We offer an adventurous activity-filled day, much of it centered around the ranch’s horses. Children and teenagers are able to experience the quiet healing that occurs when grooming, riding, and interacting with these gentle animals. The day also includes home cooked meals, rowdy game time, nature walks and making crafts. Most importantly, each child receives a Bible of their very own to take home and is able to talk with ranch staff about a God who loves them and has a wonderful plan for their life.
Son Valley ranch is a registered, nonprofit 501c3 organization. Operation costs are donor funded and all staff are volunteers. We invite you to pray with us and for us; to pray for the children we reach and the children we hope to reach; to pray for our volunteers and future planning. We also invite you to participate alongside us through volunteering or by donating funds or supplies.
