Farm volunteering in the United States

If you seek tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this farm is perfect for you. Fondness for cats is also a must. Join us!

Work on a farm while volunteering in the United States – requirements & tasks

Welcome to our inviting homestead/farm nestled amidst the serene hills of south-central Kentucky, surrounded by the Amish community.

Our farm boasts certification as Naturally Grown and specializes in cultivating garlic, seasonal vegetables, and a variety of fruits. We sell our produce directly from the farm or conveniently deliver to customers.

Outdoor gardening and planting activities commence in April. From late May through July, we meticulously dig, clean, and cure over 5000 bulbs of garlic. In mid-November and beyond, we focus on planting, fertilizing, and mulching our garlic beds. If you’re eager to delve into this industry, consider applying during these months.

We spend most of our days outdoors harvesting, planting, and preserving our produce. Continuously maintaining buildings, and fences, and undertaking various small building projects, like raised beds, bramble fencing, wood splitting, and tree cutting, remains ongoing.

We’re open to volunteers staying for varying durations. Whether you prefer a brief stay or a few weeks, flexibility is key. Self-motivation is essential, along with the ability to stay engaged during inclement weather. For those new to farming, an initial stay of less than two weeks is preferable. An affinity for cats is a must.

You will work for about 20 hours per week.
