We are continually humbled by and grateful for those who have and those who continue to support and volunteer on the farm.
Want to experience a bit of the work of farm life?
Bring a water bottle and dress in something you don't mind getting dirty and appropriate for the weather, keeping in mind you may want to be able to remove a layer in case we're working in hoophouses.
Whole families with children of all ages are welcome to volunteer here on the farm.
We can accommodate volunteers Monday - Saturday, excluding Wednesday - hours fluctuate with the season.
Spring Hours (March - May): 9 A.M. - 5 P.M.
Summer Hours (June - August): 7 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Fall Hours (September - November): 9 A.M. - 5 P.M.
Winter Hours (December - February): 11 A.M. - 3 P.M.
When you are finished, we'll hook you up with a share of the harvests with produce bucks for fruits and vegetables you helped grow in the farmstand - a bonus for helping out! For adults not attending children, we provide $6 per hour or round up to $25 for a 4-hour session.
Please know that this can be hard work in large, dirty, hot, cold, windy, muddy, weedy fields and greenhouses. The tasks in general are-but definitely not limited to: weeding, watering, planting, shoveling holes, dirt, manure, or compost, harvesting, lifting, or loading in or out. We attempt to find a task that you are capable of handling and will enjoy. No job is more or less important than another job.
Committing to volunteering once per 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 cannot 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 you can volunteer depends on your experience on other farms or gardening programs, availability, willingness to learn, and how easy you are to work with and demonstrate an “it’s about the farm, not about me” attitude because if it’s about me/you, there will be no farm.
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.
