Thank you for your desire to contribute to the mission of Milk & Honey Farms.
The contribution of your time and labor is essential to the mission, vision, and success of Milk & Honey Farms:
“Food for people, not for profit”.
I ask that you please read and are in agreement with our policies for your safety, and our own, if you would like to volunteer to help us.
We are open Sunday through Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm.
We are closed on Saturday to honor the Sabbath.
All volunteer labor must schedule ahead of time with Milk & Honey Farms, (Tim Wallace), before visiting.
- All children must be watched by adults due to safety concerns with a large pond and apiary on the property. Children are encouraged and welcome to visit, but as with all farms, they can be fascinating, fun, and dangerous if children are not supervised at all times.
- Milk & Honey Farms has a working apiary on the eastern edge of the property. At no time are visitors permitted to enter the “fenced in” field where the hives are located for your safety. Signs are posted.
- If you have a severe bee allergy you need to be aware that honey bees will be pollinating in the surrounding fields and orchard as well to other stinging and biting insects that you will find in fields and gardens. (Epi pens are provided at the two medical stations on the property).
- All gates must be shut and secured when entering and exiting.
- Milk and Honey Farms keeps a small herd of pygmy goats who you are welcome to pet and photograph, but if gates are left unsecured severe damage can be done to crops and trees if gates are not secured after entering or exiting an area.
- No one is permitted on the property alone, and must sign in when visiting.
- In the event of sudden bad weather/thunder, all volunteers must stop immediately and leave the field.
- A portable restroom is made available for volunteer use (located by the main garden plots.)
- Picnic tables are provided by the pond for volunteers who wish to bring a meal and enjoy the scenic surroundings.
- Milk & Honey Farms sits on a major migratory flight path for wild geese, ducks, swan, crane, and heron. Please be respectful of all wildlife, and the farm’s domestic animals during your visit
Thank you, and I look forward to meeting you soon.
