OTHER WAYS TO EARN FOOD

***NEW***Wednesdays with Farmer April

April’s work on the farm is often different from that of Farmer Tim and the crew.  Where they primarily focus on animal husbandry and vegetable production, April, among other things, tends the bees, grows and processes herbs (drying, tea making, medicine making, etc.), preserves food (canning, freezing, fermenting), and prepares for weekly markets.  On any given day folks could be involved in any number of projects from tending the herb garden, to making soap, to working in the bee yard, to making kraut.

  • Schedule your Wednesday at least 1 day in advance (April may not be around or space could be full if you don’t) – [email protected] or text 920-318-3800.
  • Participants are gifted gratitude food from the farm and or items from April’s projects. 
  • Volunteers usually arrive around 9am and can go until around 3pm (later than that and you will be helping make dinner). Volunteers are asked to stay at least 3 hours and as many as six.

***NEW***Harvest Potluck music/entertainment

  • Provide the music and or entertainment for our Fall Harvest Fest Potluck, held on or near Fall Equinox every year. (possibilities include; family friendly musician, drum circle facilitation, magician, etc….).  Food compensation is negotiable.

“Worker Share for a Day” Volunteer program

  • Call or email the farm, in advance, to let them know you would like to come out to help (all volunteers must be 16 yrs of age or older).
  • If you bring 2 or more helpers with you, we will give you $20 for gas. Use our carpool page to help fill your car.
  • Everyone that volunteers has access to gratitude food which is any extra food that is harvestable that day and/or food off the seconds table.

Trade/barter Non-Farm skills

  • Folks that have skills that we need to help grow and maintain the farm, may be able to trade for food. Past trades have included, electrical work, mechanical work, carpentry, and website construction. These situations are best discussed and negotiated in person. Contact [email protected] to schedule a meeting.
