Farm Volunteers
Harvesting at the Patroon Land Farm

If you like working outdoors, gardening, and helping others at the same time, sign up to volunteer at the Patroon Land Farm. At the Farm we grow vegetables for the Food Bank's member agency food pantries and soup kitchens. We have 15 acres under cultivation, a Barn with volunteer check-in area, a greenhouse, a Farm Stand, and the need for many hands to help us with this work. We'd love to have you join us. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and no prior farming experience is required.
