Welcome to Rockhill Farm
Rockhill Farm is committed to a bold vision of transforming drug- and crime-plagued communities. Rockhill Farm's aim is to transform Bakersfield and other Kern County communities from the inside out, empowering men from the community to become positive leaders there.

We believe that such a transformation can only take place by the re-integration of vocationally, educationally, and spiritually trained men back into the broken homes and communities from which they came. Personal accountability, self-discipline, and hard work by each member of Rockhill Farm are supported by training and practice in agriculture, business, and community organizing. The men of Rockhill Farm develop skills to give them a new chance at a healthier life – for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Rockhill Farm:
Courage. Self-Mastery. Empowerment.

Rockhill empowers former felons, gang members, and recovering addicts to become positive contributors to society through a residential reentry program of vocational, educational, and spiritual training on a sustainable-living organic farm.
