Located on ten peaceful acres in the mountains of North Idaho, the Sagle farm is a licensed home, for up to eight young men, ages 13-17. In addition to daily academics, students care for the vegetable gardens, perform basic farm chores and participate in other building projects such as our nine-hole Frisbee disc golf course. Everyone contributes by cooking, cleaning, doing laundry and other daily chores.
Our house is wood-heated which provides work all year long, whether it’s hauling wood, splitting it, stacking it, or making kindling. We tend an enormous garden every summer, growing everything from carrots to peas to strawberries to tomatoes. Every fall we enjoy the harvest from our blueberry bushes, apple trees, pear trees, and cherry trees.
Northwoods’ students enjoy a variety of local recreational activities including mountain biking, working out at SWAC, the local health club, sailing, swimming, and fishing on Lake Pend Oreille. Winter activities include skiing and snowboarding at Schweitzer Mountain.
The Sagle Farm offers a home environment for personal growth through support and guidance.
