Be a Worker-share!

New fenceWe have an amazing program on our farm–our workershare program is a great opportunity for those who join to learn more about sustainable farming and a great opportunity to teach people about what we do. Our worker-share volunteers gain a better understanding of how their food is produced, how much time and effort farmers use to keep things going, and get in a great work-out at the same time. We are only an hour away from Atlanta and our urban workers love getting out to the farm and enjoying the beautiful outdoors while getting their hands dirty. We always love working with these very special CSA members and sharing our vision for sustainable farming and land stewardship.

Being a worker-share volunteer means that you will come to Wolfscratch Farm to learn and work on the farm for 4-6 hours per week, preferably on a scheduled day for those that are dedicated, and you will get a weekly CSA half-share to take home at the end of each shift. If you would like to come out and experience farming, but cannot commit to one day every week, you can join us on a more relaxed basis as long as you notify us of your arrival at least one week in advance. You will still receive a half-share of produce at the end of any shift worked! This is a great way to be a part of the growing experience, learn more about the food you eat, and pick your own food for the week. Although all of our worker-shares have fun, farm work can be very physical and we work in most weather conditions – hot sun, cold rain, and everything in between. We rely on our worker-share volunteers to help complete important tasks, like planting, hand-weeding, harvesting, and maintaining soil composition, throughout our growing season. If you are interested in joining us, please fill out this form.

We have worker-share orientation throughout the year, and all new worker-shares must show up for one day of orientation. Orientation includes a farm tour, an introduction to farm duties/rules/plans, as well as a time to share stories and ask questions.

We are also looking to barter some of our produce for carpentry/handy-man work, animal husbandry and/or veterinary care, and social media and networking support. If you have any of these skills, and are interested in trading services for our produce, please let us know.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our worker-share program or want to join us for some old-fashion hard work. You can leave a comment here or contact us at wolfscratchfarm@gmail.com
