Welcome to Thistle Farms!
Thistle Farms is a powerful community of women who are healing from prostitution, trafficking and addiction. We employ more than 45 survivors through our social enterprises which include Thistle Farms Home & Body, Thistle Stop Cafe, artisan studio, and Thistle Farms Global. 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 and Becca Stevens have been featured on numerous national platforms including the The Today Show, A Path Appears on PBS, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, and NPR. Thistle Farms stands for the truth that, in the end, love is the most powerful force for change in the world.
