Are you interested in farming and gardening? Want to learn to grow and harvest food? Wagner farm is looking for farm volunteers!

Many of our volunteers commit to a minimum of one 4 hour shift a week, June through October, but we're happy to work with your schedule to create an experience that works for you as well as for the farm.

Volunteers tend our market garden by planting, weeding, cultivating and harvesting a wide variety of vegetables.

If you love being outside, connecting with the land and have an appreciation for where our food comes from, this is the place for you!

Mission Statement

To promote an educational and memorable experience through programs and site visits that ignite the imagination, inspire our visitors, and preserve our local agricultural history.

Description

Historic Wagner Farm is one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County and is open to the public for recreation and learning. The farm provides a unique opportunity for families to learn about our farming heritage and experience first hand "the way things used to be."

In addition to the cows in the pasture, Wagner Farm has chickens, draft horses, and pigs as well as a restored farmhouse and barn and the award-winning Wagner Farm Heritage Center. The Heritage Center contains interactive exhibits where you can learn about farming from the early 20th century through the present, "shop through history" at our 1930s Grocery Store or purchase a souvenir of your visit from our Museum Store.
