Tattered Lives Farm

“Tattered Lives Farm brings together people who have experienced trauma with rescued farm animals as a means to improve their overall joy in life.”.


Our Story

Our founder, Jason Jean, recognized through multiple life-changing events, that trauma and loss do not care who, what or where you are. He also realized that the groups that suffer through this, whether two or four or no legs, usually don’t have the support they need – that’s where Tattered Lives Farm (“TLF”) comes in. Being a 56+ acre parcel that operates as a North Carolina and federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our mission is to bring the lives of both animals, visitors and community together to promote healing in a therapeutic environment.

Tattered Lives Stories

Through the use of its production capabilities, TLF will produce a show called “Tattered Lives”. This show will focus on trauma victims and allow them to tell their stories, breaking the stigma that is their reality. By opening up and sharing their journey, we hope to help them heal and assist others in their search for peace.


On the adjacent 100 acres TLF is going to do something never done before. TLF is going to build over 100+ 3 bedroom, 2 bath, affordable rental units. This has never been done before, TLF has set out to make this happen without using a penny of institutional money. Everyone is quick to say this is impossible, that won’t be the first time our founder has heard that. Be apart of something so incredible!
