Hundred Acre Homestead was created to meet the unique needs of individuals working to restore their mental and emotional balance and return to a meaningful, productive, independent life.
Through meaningful work, play and the participation in a larger community, Hundred Acre Homestead helps individuals gain insight and develop powerful tools that can help them to regain their hopes and pursue their dreams.
The daily chores and seasonal cycles of our small Vermont farm provide invaluable opportunities for individuals to cultivate positive, healthy feelings; build motivation; develop a sense of purpose; and experience the personal pride that comes with true accomplishment.
The healing environment of Hundred Acre Homestead respects the personal goals of each individual as they learn and grow in a small, structured, family environment. The practical experiences, peer interactions and life-lessons that are a part of every day on the farm will last a lifetime.
Hundred Acre Homestead supports a violence and coercion free environment that focuses on recovery, choice, partnership, autonomy and frequent communication.
