Welcome to a place
where magic happens

Gratidude Ranch is a rustic, timeless place and once you enter, get ready for a magical experience. Less than 20 miles south of Historic Downtown Franklin, TN, approx 10 miles from the well-known Loveless Cafe, and approx 35 miles from downtown Nashville, Gratidude Ranch is just a hop, skip and a jump from just about everything you would want to see when visiting the Nashville area. Sitting on about 6 acres the gated property includes a barn, a pavilion, a plaza, a riding arena, lush landscape, campfires, a babbling creek, and several picnic and seating areas.  The ranch is available for private events permitted by Williamson County including small weddings and parties up to 100 people.  The ranch also houses S.A.F.E., a local non-profit serving foster children and foster families in Williamson County and Middle Tennessee (www.safehouseforall.org). By visiting the ranch and utilizing our services you can leave knowing that your support allows us to provide the ranch as a place and resource to children and families needing some extra love.

Healing the planet, One child at a time

Gratidude Ranch houses a non-profit called SAFE (Safe, Affirming, Family Environment) whose mission includes 1) educating the community on the desperate need of foster parents and foster homes in Middle Tennessee 2) connecting those individuals or couples interested in fostering with the Department of Child Services to learn more and hopefully begin their journey of certification 3) providing a physical space and location as a resource for foster families, agencies, organizations and other state resources to use to support their families, clients and programs 4) providing resources to foster youth aging out of the system, educating them on their options and benefits, and most importantly helping them prepare for independent living through life skill training.  Visit the official site for SAFE at www.safehouseforall.org.

Gratidude Ranch is a beautiful mini-farm located just 8 miles from historic Leipers Fork Village.  If Sunday morning had a hometown, the charming village of Leiper’s Fork might very well be it. This come-as-you-are treasure of Williamson County is a homegrown mix of picturesque surroundings, culture, and Southern fare. 

The creative climate of Leiper’s Fork is thanks to a quiet, distinguished force of local artists. Galleries such as The Copper Fox, Leiper’s Creek Gallery and David Arms draw visitors from around the world. Antiques lovers and collectors will find area shops a refreshing, regional mix of history, story, and style. The Fork’s curious mix of swank and come-sit-a-spell charm is contagious and echoes in boutiques like Serenite Maison, West and Company, and Wanderlust.  And, of course, you can't forget the food! Once you visit, you may never want to leave.
