WWOLF at Windy Acres Dairy Farm
May 9, 2021 @ 3:00 am - 8:00 am
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.
We will adhere to the COVID recommendations set forth by the Oregon Health Authority, CDC, and Gov. Kate Brown. Rest assured, we are taking every precaution to keep you safe during the WWOLF events. We hope you join us!
How It Works: You will meet the group at Windy Acres Dairy in Prineville at 10am. After a round of introductions at the farm, we will split into groups and get to work. We will break for lunch around noon and then continue working until 3pm or the projects for the day are complete.
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, face mask for times when 6-foot distancing isn't possible, closed-toe shoes, layers for the weather, and sunscreen. Tools and all materials needed to complete tasks will be provided by the farm. Soup and bread will be provided for lunch along with some product 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.
