WWOLF - September 18 at Windy Acres Dairy 

Willing Workers On Local Farms (WWOLF) is a community program of Central Oregon Locavore Non-Profit with the goal of lending a hand to small farmers while educating the community about the true nature of local food.

How It Works: You will meet the group at Windy Acres Dairy Farm at 10am. After a round of introductions at the farm, we will split into groups and get to work. We will take a lunch break at midday and then continue working until 3pm. 

What to Expect: Good times, new friends, and a boots-on-the-ground education about local farming practices. We love dogs, but please leave them at home for this event.

What to Bring: Snacks and water, work gloves, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, and sunscreen. Soup and bread will be provided for lunch along with some produce from the farm, or bring your own! We will have a hand washing station and sanitizer for participant use. 

About Windy Acres Dairy Farm: Windy Acres Dairy Farm was purchased in 1994 as a hobby farm. We turned it into a operational Grade A dairy in 2003 and milked our first cows in the parlor Oct. 31st.  We started with 44 cows. By 2005 we were up to 60 head in the parlor and 20 heifers being raised to come into the parlor at some point.  Because the cost and work was outweighing the income we sold the bulk of the herd in June, 2005.  The farm started raising calves and milking only 7 cows.  We are currently raising pigs, lamb and calves for the food chain of natural meat as well as chickens for meat and eggs. Seasonally we have blueberries and honey available.
