Welcome to Thistle Farms!
Thistle Farms is a powerful community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. We employ more than 50 survivors through our social enterprise which includes a natural body care company, Thistle Stop Cafe, paper and sewing studio, and global marketplace called Shared Trade. Started in 1997 by Rev. Becca Stevens under the name Magdalene, Thistle Farms includes a two-year residential program and advocacy services for up to 700 women yearly. We provide education and training annually through speaking events and immersion workshops. Thistle Farms believes that in the end, love is the most powerful force for change in the world.
