What's New at Jasper Ridge Farm

Veterans Horseback Riding Program

Working with the Veterans Administration/Palo Alto Health Care System, our Veterans Horseback Riding Program provides opportunities for active duty personnel and injured veterans (including those dealing with traumatic brain injuries and/or post-traumatic stress disorder) to ride horses.

This activity provides tremendous physical and emotional benefits to the Veterans, by increasing their self-confidence and decreasing depression, while also improving strength, balance, range of motion and flexibility.

Meet Buster and Oliver

The newest members of the Jasper Ridge Farm flock are our Baby Doll Sheep, Buster and Oliver. Both boys were born in the spring of 2013 and grew up in Redwood city before they joined us at our temporary home in Gilroy.

They are affectionate, sweet, and love meeting new people. They hop right into the Jasper Ridge Farm trailer, and have already been on a number of visits including the recent pediatric neuro-oncology picnic.


Why We Are Making Changes....

With your help over the last five years, Jasper Ridge Farm has flourished! We have grown from serving 110 children per month to our recent all time high of 400 people per month. Requests for our programs have grown so much that we need more animals and more space in order to meet the current needs. NCEFT kindly allowed us to lease our original space in Woodside to get our organization launched, and we are very grateful to have had such a lovely place to incubate our programs. Thank you NCEFT! But as we needed more space than they had available for us we were in need of a new home.

Where We Are Moving....

Webb Ranch has invited us to move onto their property on Alpine Road, and has offered us a lovely two-acre site, rent free! They are allowing us to build a new barn and a covered arena which will enable us to grow and operate our programs year-round. With the help of Webb Ranch, we have been running all of our "HorseBuddies" programs there for several years already, and we are proud and appreciative of the collaboration.

How We Plan to Pay for Things....

It will cost us $400,000 to build the barn, arena and infrastructure. Our Board voted to conduct a capital campaign and to date, we have received commitments of just over $309,000 to the campaign! We are currently soliciting large sponsorships and commitments while we wrap up final plans for the campaign.

What Is Happening in the Meantime....

When our lease in Woodside expired we found an ideal temporary home in Gilroy to house our family of animals. We continue to operate our regular offsite programs at facilities such as Ronald McDonald House, and have increased the number of programs we are currently running at Webb Ranch.

How You Can Help....

We are on the cusp of helping so many more people and providing a better home for our animals... we couldn't do it without all the love and support from each and every volunteer and donor. Volunteers, while we are in our temporary Gilroy home, we will still need help with our Program Visits. Animal Care volunteers and Youth Volunteers, because our temporary home is quite a distance, we hope you will hang in there and join us again when we are at Webb Ranch.

Donors, we need help with our ongoing monthly operational and program costs, as well as donations towards our Capital Campaign so that we can expedite our move to Webb Ranch!

A Testimonial...
"Jasper Ridge Farm takes animal therapy to a whole new level. They have been great partners to Ronald McDonald House bringing joy to the children who stay with us!"
