We love having volunteers out at the farm! 
Please remember we have many fun events hosted at the farm if you would like to come play, cuddle, ride or feed animals. Our volunteers are passionate about helping improve animal areas, lighten the farmers' load and building work ethic (and muscle). 

Benefits of volunteering at the farm:
1) Volunteers get up close and personal encounters inside the animal pens while they are working! 
2) Volunteers get a hands-on experience about farm work! It will make or break your plan to start your own farm/homestead!
3) Volunteers get a free work-out around animals without the cost of a gym membership.
4) Volunteers looking to work with animals in their future can get hands-on experience and knowledge about the well-being and health of a variety of species. Recommend you come on our herd health check dates! 
5) Volunteers can share their talents, like art, photography or videography, and maybe even get noticed by one of our 10,000 followers including national news stations and build a customer base.
6) Volunteers can earn hours for school or experience for their future resume or even fun farm gifts!

2) Free of substance abuse or illegal drug use:
All volunteers are to be of a sound mind while around animals, our family (the farmers) and our customers. No tolerance for drug or alcohol use while on our premises.

All volunteers should be willing and able to pass a background check since they will be potentially working around children and animals. If you would not pass then we are not the place for you.
