WWOLF - May 29 at DD Ranch 

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 DD Ranch at 9am. After a round of introductions, we will split into groups and get to work. Our main task will be to get the pumpkin patch ready for planting. We will finish our day with light lunch of soup and bread.

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. Our main task will be to prepare the farm for the upcoming growing season. There will be a wide variety of jobs for all ages and abilities.

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, or bring your own! We will have a hand washing station and sanitizer for participant use. 

About DD RanchLocated in beautiful Central Oregon, DD Ranch raises 100% grass fed/finished beef and lamb, heritage pork, eggs from free-range hens, and raw honey from happy bees. Much of our livestock are heritage breeds, promoting genetic diversity. We promote a closed system. While we are not certified organic, we do follow organic practices and have reseeded our pastures with OMRI-certified alfalfa. Our pastures are not sprayed, nor do we use chemical fertilizers. We do not use hormones or antibiotic feed for our livestock. We will be working with the Savory Institute beginning in 2021 to employ regenerative pasture management practices to further our knowledge of sustainable agriculture.

We believe that happy and healthy stock makes for happy and healthy families.

The ranch provides access to the stunning countryside setting of the Smith Rock area. We offer memorable ranch adventures such as school field trips, hunting, private events, weddings, and more. We believe in promoting a strong local community and host annual events such as our Pumpkin Patch and the Great Harvest OCR 5K. We hope you’ll join us.
