Dockley Ranch

Volunteers who desire to expand this 80 acre canvas and help bring dreams to life are welcome. If you are just looking for a stop along your journey as you traverse the country, we would love to meet you as well. All skill sets and interests will find a place here. And every kind of human will find themselves at home here—even if for a short time. A friendly herd of colorful Nigerian Dwarf Goats graze in the 5 acre pasture, and a few Alpacas, a flock of chickens and several gentle dogs roam freely about the property. Few things are better than sitting at the bar under the original cabin roof, overlooking the stage tucked beneath the historic 250 year old white oak tree, as the sun sets spectacularly behind a uniquely Ozarks vista. 60 of these acres consist of lush forest, trails and a waterfall as well as campsites. Our newest feature, besides you, is a whimsical, off grid cabin built specifically to house those who decide to get off the beaten path and come work with us.

Owners Claire and Myke will always be available and within communication. Long-term volunteers and farm-hands Deborah and Chris will likely work with you on the daily tasks and projects.

I loved helping out around the ranch and getting to know the great people (and animals) there!
