Our farm is open from March-November on the weekends for the public. Throughout October our farm is open 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday. During the other months, our farm is open from 1pm-4pm. During those times our largest need for volunteers is gate keepers. These volunteers manage the gates in the animal pens, ensuring the safety of both the animals and the patrons. Volunteers must be comfortable interacting with the public and with animals. We have many species of animals including: chickens, pigs, goats, cows, sheep, donkeys, ponies, ducks, geese and rabbits. Open Farm Days attendance is pretty dependent on the weather. Some days volunteers end up interacting with the public a lot, while other days are a lot of spending time with the animals. Please inquire for more information.
