Family Farm Day - Appleton Farms

That time of the year is upon us again and Family Farm Day is right around the corner! This is our biggest (and best!) event of the year and we need your help to make it happen! Below is the general description of the event AND a list of volunteer positions. If you are interested in volunteering for this event, you can find out more information about each position and sign up. Please contact Marc Mahan, our Northeast Volunteer Resource Coordinator, with any questions at mmahan@thetrustees.org. 

The event runs from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. You can sign up to volunteer in the morning, afternoon or both! The morning shift is 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM. The afternoon shift is from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM. If you volunteer for the whole day, doing both shifts, youwill receive a complimentary lunch! This is a great volunteer opportunity for groups, and for students who need community service hours! Volunteer with your friends or your family, and have a fun day at the farm!

Event Description

Come celebrate the fall season with some good old-fashioned fun on America's oldest working farm. Grab your friends and family and join us at Appleton Farms for our annual Family Farm Day! Visit with our farm animals, climb aboard a tractor, paint your own pumpkin, learn about beekeeping, challenge your friends at the potato spoon relay or hay obstacle course, and make sure to enjoy a pony ride!
