If you’d like to help out around the farm please show up to one of our regular work days. You don’t need to sign up or contact us at all before coming to a regular work day.

Learn and Work Volunteer Days:

The times below are when our farmers are on site and have projects for volunteers to work on. You can show up at any time during that period and stay however long you’re available. We appreciate any time you can spend with us!
