The 1200-acre ranch is located in the foothills of the Quachita mountains in Perryville, Arkansas. This is a working ranch along with an educational center. Here you can work with the ranch hands, doing day-to-day tasks on a small-scale agricultural operation. The barn features many of the animals that we donate regularly. During the proper seasons, pig farrowing and lambing can be witnessed and can be participated in.
Most is the Global Village. It is a collection of international homes modeling some of the countries in which Heifer works. Thailand, Guatemala, Zambia, China and Tibet are featured. Rounding out the ranch activities is the ranch café, where farm fresh meals are served. And lastly is the gift shop, an international gift shop to support the livelihoods of artisans from around the world.
The tours and overall visit to the headquarters and ranch truly put into perspective the work that Heifer International does, here at home and around the world.
