The Mission 1
We at Double M Ranch for veteran’s program understand the importance of a community environment. Looking forward to meeting you and share our life together with fellow service members, veterans and their families. Come Plant a garden, tend to the animals or just watch their silly antics. Help us Work on buildings, or help with a chicken pen, or take a walk through our gardens; everyone is invited to come, stop in, and make new friend, meet old friends.
Double M Ranch is a peaceful, safe and healing atmosphere to cultivated, to grow, and help healing take place. Many special events will be offered to help the community to grow and share all opportunities available.
Our veterans give back to their brethren, a very important aspect of the farm community. Many veterans feel useless, worthless, that they have nothing to offer.
Double M Ranch Is an environment created for sharing. Veterans through the sharing of needs, with safety of the experience, share what they have learned. DMR Veterans are a blessing to those who first come to the Ranch.
To those Veterans having a struggle or a "bad day," We will share each other’s burdens and together we will be strong.
Other local Veteran/related groups are welcome to use the facilities for their meetings and gatherings as well.
