Rick Bond

Rick Bond was born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and began his professional life in public safety shortly after High School. Since that time Rick has retired from the U.S. Air Force and after working as a Police Officer, Fire Fighter and Executive Protection Operative, Rick left the craziness of Public Safety for the Crazy of “Ranch Life” . Rick has both a Bachelors and a Master degree and is an Ordained Pastor. Together, Rick and Sonya have built an incredible spiritual life using their farm and now the ranch to spread God’s word and move his faith forward to those in need.

A Ranch was started

Sonya and her daughter, Shauna, started the farm in 2007, when Shauna was only 7 years old. They started with bunny rabbits and shortly thereafter added all the other animals. Husband, Rick, decided that he would join the team. Being a ranching family is a way of life, that we chose with its ups and downs but we wouldn't have it any other way!

Sonya Bond

Sonya Bond was born in Lowville, New York and after high school moved to Virginia to attend Eastern Mennonite University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work/Counseling. In 2007, Sonya purchased two bunnies to assist in explaining the “sex” talk to her children. After that talk, with the help of her daughter Shauna, “Hippity Hop Parties and More” was born. Since then God has asked Sonya to add more animals. While expanding the farm, Sonya and Rick realized that Sonya's little farm had out grown their property in Gastonia, NC and with the Lord's guidance, A New Life Ranch was established. Since the beginning, Sonya has been able to build an incredible spiritual life using the farm and now the ranch to spread God's word and move forward in her faith.
