Little Everglades
Ranch & Retreat

(Insert Mission Statement)

Offering an affordable place for people in full time ministry to rest in simple comfort without distractions. Providing an environment for soul care and to foster a deeper connection with the Lord.

A little about the Ranch & Retreat...

We Welcome You with Love to the Wilder Side of Florida

   • Located in rural Dade City, FL - 1 Hour North of the Tampa Airport

   • Pastures reflective of a cattle ranch from a 100 years ago 

   • Wetlands and oak hammocks, both on the Ranch and in the adjoining Green Swamp, unchanged for a much longer period


Carefully and lovingly built residences

   The homes at the Retreat were built with care by the Blanchard and Rice families. They continue to be used from time to time by members of the Rice family, who are integral members of the LER&R ministry team. Combined the residences can accommodate up to 30 guests.

An operating cattle ranch

   (details about cattle operation - how many head, what breed)


Most importantly... 

   A beautiful and tranquil portion of God’s creation, where the closeness and brilliance of the stars at night inspire awe and praise for the Creator and where guests can rest, study, pray, meditate, and relax  - or fellowship with our ministry members and affiliates.


Designed for those in full time ministry...

LER & R has been put in place to offer those in full time Christian ministry a place they can recover and focus on God in a simple environment away from many distractions. Guests are by invitation only though our sponsors and partners. Contact one of our approved partners to inquire about this opportunity for you and your family.
