Animal Husbandry
One of our volunteers helping out around the barn!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with HOOF! Many of the jobs that come with this volunteer spot are not glamorous and can be dirty and grueling (cleaning habitats, collecting manure, cleaning workspaces, building/construction, maintenance, etc.) but these jobs are very important to the health and safety of our animals.

HOOF works closely with Greenlands Farm, the bona fide farm where HOOF is located, in educating about animal and environmental science, animal welfare, and sustainable practices. Some of the projects you will be helping with are in benefit of Greenlands Farm. Helpers Of Our Farm is a small nonprofit with not enough income to support the animals and programs and HOOF depends greatly on the donations from Greenlands Farm to continue. Your help with Greenlands Farm, in turn, helps keep HOOF going!

About Helpers Of Our Farm

Location:

668 Midway Road SE, Boliva, NC 28422, US

Mission Statement

Helpers Of Our Farm (HOOF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization centered around education, enriching the lives of the community with hands on learning and therapeutic experiences. HOOF’s mission is to provide intriguing educational programs and therapeutic programs through farm animals, many of which have been rescued, rehomed, adopted, and donated. With the help of these animals and Greenlands Farm, HOOF teaches homesteading, environmental science, animal science, and animal welfare. HOOF’s hope is to create a better world for animals and the environment through knowledge. HOOF is a platform for the community to learn, grow, and volunteer.

Description

Greenlands Farm started a petting farm in 2011 with a vision to use farm animals and the sustainable homestead itself as an educationa l platform for the community. Greenlands Farm friends established Helpers of Our Farm (HOOF) in 2016. We are "Helpers of Our Farm" not only because these animals depend on humans to help them, but also because these animals help us by teaching us how to love, care, and learn from them. They perform an important task of educating visitors during our tours, petting farm, and farm classes. The goal has always been to integrate education and therapy into the lives of our community through the lives of these animals. Greenlands Farm has won recognition and an award for their outstanding stewardship of the land with their "green" and sustainable stormwater design.
