What's New at Jasper Ridge Farm

Join Us for our Barn Warming/Open House Celebration

Jasper Ridge Farm is hosting an open house celebration at 1:00p.m., Saturday, September 17 to introduce the community to the new, on-site location of the Farm in Portola Valley. There will be tours, a brief program and refreshments.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos will join Executive Director Wendy Mattes and community supporters for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to dedicate the new facility in honor of all the children and veterans served by the healing programs offered by Jasper Ridge Farm.

Who: Over the past seven years Jasper Ridge Farm has grown into a thriving organization serving over a 1,500 children and veterans each year who interact with a farmyard of gentle animals. Children facing life threatening illnesses, or those dealing with stressful family situations such as homelessness or domestic violence, or those living with special needs, can find comfort, healing and joy in the company of a cuddly bunny, a gentle horse or a playful goat. Programs for active military and veterans with traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and physical disabilities are flourishing as well.


  • Welcome the community to the new, permanent location in Portola Valley
  • Tours of the Farm and hear an overview of the programs that bring joy and comfort to children and veterans with chronic or terminal illness or conditions, from Executive Director and Founder, Wendy Mattes
  • Hear from families and clients who have directly benefited from Jasper Ridge Farm programs
  • Meet and interact with the petite animals at Jasper Ridge Farm including: goats, horses, sheep, rabbits and guinea pigs
  • Learn about volunteer opportunities for both youth and adults year ‘round
  • Learn about plans for the covered arena, and how you can help

When: Saturday, September 17, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

Cost: No cost to attend

Where: Jasper Ridge Farm, 2720 Alpine Road, Portola Valley, on the beautiful Webb Ranch

Help us build our covered riding arena before the winter rains come!

Generous donors have already pledged $86,000, 52% of our $165,000 objective.

So we still need $79,000 to RAISE THE ROOF on our beautiful covered riding arena, which will enable us to operate our programs year round, rain or shine!
