The Exchange

Our Retreat Center for Veterans & First Responders provides breakfast and lunch for our live-in residents. We're not many, perhaps 4-8. We want variety & nutrition. We are an organic vegerable garden and just planted 25 fruit trees. Hopefully, soon we can grow all produce ourselves. We even have chickens! We have pool, soccer field, basketball court, tennis court, 45 acres of coffee fields and beautiful views.
