WWOLF – DD Ranch
September 19, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Willing Workers On Local Farms (WWOLF) 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 have revamped our program to adhere to the recommendations set forth by the Oregon Health Authority, CDC, and Gov. Kate Brown. Rest assured, we are taking every precaution to keep you safe. We hope you join us!
How It Works You will meet the group at DD Ranch in Terrebonne 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, your favorite hand tool, 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 DD Ranch: Located 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 all of 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 believe that happy and healthy stock make for happy and healthy families.
The ranch also provides access to the stunning countryside setting of the Smith Rock area. The Anspach family offers memorable ranch adventures such as school field trips, hunting, private events, weddings, and more. We also 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.
