Farm Stays

Plan an Overnight Stay

The third Saturday of every month, High Hog Farm invites volunteers from our surrounding community to come, gather on the farm and lend a hand.

If you like being outdoors, meeting new and interesting neighbors, making new friends, and learning more about where your food comes from, all while lending a hand on the farm, come join in on the fun. No experience is required to volunteer – we will train you on everything you need to know. This is a great opportunity to work on the land, learn more about our programs, and help us grow food for our local community. Share some family-friendly fun with neighbors and friends, and be sure to stop by our farm stand before you leave for some fresh, seasonal goodies. These farm days are a great introduction to our farm and the kind of work we do to help create a more equitable, sustainable food system and the way food and farm can create spaces for belonging, as well as lead to wellness, happiness, and wholeness.
