Rather volunteer for a CSA share?

Volunteer for Veggies

Have an extra hour? Come on out!
We are continually humbled by and grateful for those who have and those who continue to volunteer on the farm.

This is information about the volunteer for veggies program. We also have a volunteer program (without a vegetable trade), a WOOF opportunity, and an intern program. If you want information about one of our other opportunities please contact us: email, call or text (435) 865-6792

It is pretty simple: We provide the task and you provide the labor. * You work at least an hour or up to 4 hours. Dress for the weather.  Bring a water bottle, food, sunscreen, gloves, hat, and anything else you need. When you are finished you shop for veggies at the Back Porch our farm stand. Not always but sometimes we offer other items to volunteer for veggies. 1 hour = $6 worth of veggies 2 hours= $12 worth of veggies 3 hours = $18 worth of veggies 4 hours= $25 worth of veggies.

You can just show up but we may not have a task for you. We prefer you to contact us before you come out. Texting is best. You can also call or email to let us know the time and day you would like to come out, Mon-Sat. We are closed on Sundays and do not answer the door, phone or emails.

Please know that this is hard work in large, dirty, hot, cold, windy, muddy, weedy fields and greenhouses. The task in general are, but definitely not limited to: weeding, watering, planting, shoveling holes, dirt, manure, harvesting, lifting, loading in or out, feeding and watering animals.  You must be able to work at whatever task we need work done on during your shift. No job is more or less important than another job!

Committing to 4 hours once a week on the same day gives you the opportunity to do more, to learn the different tasks and get good at them which helps us more too! If you can not do the same time or day, no worries the task is just more mundane, i.e. you might just be weeding every time or scooping poop!

How often can you volunteer depends on your experience on other farms or gardening programs, availability, willingness to learn and generally how easy you are to work with and demonstration of an “it’s about the farm, not about me…” attitude. Because if it’s about me/you there will be no farm.

You could work, find a job and certainly get paid more then the trade is worth! We know you can get paid more and so could we! Our food should be worth more as well. The cost of food and how it works in this country is another story. We just look at it as we are all in this together doing something good for the right reason. We call you a volunteer and suggest you not do this if you are looking at the hours compared to the cost. Our volunteers and volunteer for veggies do this because they wanted to and would have worked here anyway so the veggies really become a perk, a bonus for helping out.

If you have a skill an idea or something to offer that you feel would help the farm let us know what your idea is.

*Whole families with children of all ages come to volunteer here on the farm. But we do not count children coming over the age of 12 as working. I am sure there are teens who are capable we just have not seen that as of yet. We are willing to always try again.
If you have a child under the age of 12 with you when you work you must have another adult with you to watch that child.
