We love our Volunteers at Gould Farm! Happy National Volunteer Week!

At Gould Farm, volunteers are an essential part of farm life and we appreciate them every day. During National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we would like to share a special thanks to all the volunteers, past and present, whose time, hard work and hearts have, and continue, to enrich our community.

Our volunteers come from all stages and walks of life and are essential to running the farm, engaging guests in a range of activities, and to creating nourishing relationships that help guests learn and grow from their time at the Farm.

We offer our thanks to each and every one of them for all they do!
