McHardy Artisan & Equestrian Homestead
About the Property
Located just south of Brandon, the McHardy property is a turn-key site with stunning facilities for every aspect of this ministry. It offers a 5-acre plot with all the existing buildings, and the potential for an additional 23 acres of pasture with an additional housing eligibility.
A large, 3-level, 6-bedroom home – with a ready-made counseling office with its own bathroom and entrance – offers room for our residents to transform and grow; the lower level with a second kitchen may be the perfect place for mothers to be reunified with their children and ‘stretch their wings’ before taking flight!
There are actually three heated and air-conditioned shop spaces, including an artisan studio and two additional steel buildings with plenty of room for the social enterprise ventures of Chrysalis. Not only women from the house, but others from Sioux Falls and surrounding communities could find gainful employment in a Christ-centered, encouraging environment.
The quaint barn, with paddocks and pasture, would offer the perfect start to our equine ministry for these women and their families. Future growth could include the addition of a heated indoor round pen or full-scale arena to offer year round services.
This property would allow us to begin ministry almost as soon as we are given the keys!
