Founded in 2011 by Jim and Barbara Goodenough, Danner Farms is a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Organization. With their 1870's farm house and eight acres of meadows, trees, old buildings, and canyon wall, the Goodenoughs have opened their home and their hearts to the youth and families of Milton-Freewater and the Walla Walla Valley area.
Encouraged by the enthusiastic support of local schools and churches, Jim and Barb welcomed the first boy and his mentor to Danner Farms in December of 2012. Once there were boys ... there were dogs.
It is the desire of the Goodenoughs and every person involved with Danner Farms to serve the community by offering a place of acceptance, learning, friendship, encouragement, and fun in a safe and caring environment.
Danner was a "good dog" who entered our lives in 1994 and spent the next 11 years teaching us powerful lessons about friendship, faithfulness, unconditional love, and devotion.
Naming the Mentoring Project for Danner is a fitting tribute to a dog that was the epitome of "man's best friend."
