A Chat with Yamhill Community Farm
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer a unique farm experience with classroom education and outdoor farm encounters. The end goal is to educate and involve the community, adults and children alike in the production of high quality food, with an emphasis on using natural techniques.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide the farm! Students need to be dressed for the possibility of being outside on the farm and getting a little dirty. Be mindful of the weather when choosing what to wear.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have a passion to contribute to my community by offering a place where exploration of creative and practical endeavors can thrive in a nature oriented environment. It is our mission that the people, space, animals, and plants touched by us better than when we started.
What do you love most about your job?
It brings me great pleasure and joy to share farming values with the community. My dream is to impact my local community by giving members an opportunity to experience the values that are inherent to taking care of animals that ultimately provide nutrition or textile goods for human use.
