Big Sky Ranch and Retreat is an organic ranch and farm dedicated to raising awareness and nurturing the wellbeing of people, animals, and the planet. Proceeds from Big Sky programs and events support the ongoing rescue and care of abandoned and neglected domestic pets and farm animals from across Louisiana via the CATNIP Foundation.


Big Sky Ranch and Retreat is truly an Integrative Wellness Retreat and Conscious Living Center. 


Situated on 10 pristine, wooded acres in rural Folsom, Louisiana, Big Sky Ranch offers a setting that nourishes the body, mind, and spirit. Big Sky guests are invited to pause, reflect, and relax on our working farm and animal sanctuary, and our one-of-a-kind programs and events provide an opportunity for individuals, families, and friends to become self-aware and mindful,  while fostering a transformative wellness lifestyle.
