Responding to this crisis, The Big Red Barn Retreat, a 501(c)(3), was created in honor of Leon Irons, a veteran and entrepreneur. The mission of BRBR is to provide a place of healing, hope, and post-traumatic growth for veterans, active-duty military, and first responders. To date, BRBR provides an array of integrated, hands-on, therapeutic mental health services AT NO COST to over 9,000 of our state’s heroes experiencing post-traumatic or combat-related stress. BRBR’s wide-ranging program (e.g., equine-assisted therapy, restorative yoga, Tai Chi, Transcendental Meditation, healing arts and photography, music therapy, gardening/healthy eating, Farm-to-Table, beekeeping, and peer-to-peer mentoring) help our state’s warriors learn how to manage stress and improve their quality of life.

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership

The Big Red Barn Retreat was built in honor of Leon Irons, who passed away in 2009. Leon served in the Navy out of high school before beginning a successful career in the restaurant business. His family still operates the Sonic Drive-Ins in the Columbia area, as well as some other markets. To honor his life and his love of country, his family opened The Big Red Barn Retreat to help our military in need of healing find peace. The Big Red Barn Retreat is a non-profit 501(c)(3).
