“The more organised we are and the more commitment we have from our amazing volunteers, the better the experience will be for you and for the animals”

– The Happy Herd

Some information to consider:

  • Volunteers must be 16 years or older.
  • We prefer our volunteers to be able to commit to a regular schedule (i.e. once a week, or once every two weeks).
  • You must bring a signed liability waiver with you the first time.
  • Be sure to wear farm-appropriate attire: boots or rubber boots, clothing that can get dirty, gloves & a mask if you’re sensitive to dust when cleaning stalls.
  • On your first day, you’ll have an orientation with another volunteer where you’ll meet the animals and be shown around the farm. Someone will be available to help you orient to the different jobs so you become comfortable.

Volunteer hours available:

  • Year Round: 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM or
  • Afternoons: 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM (earlier in winter)
