Volunteer at the Patroon Land Farm

Tap into your inner farmer! We welcome volunteers to help grow and harvest produce at the Farm. In 2017, more than 2,000 volunteers donated 7,100 work hours to the Farm. If you’re interested in planting, picking, packing, or learning about agriculture and the process of farming, let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

School Tours

Each spring, classrooms begin the growing-harvest cycle as partners with the Food Bank. Staff visit classrooms providing soil, seeds and growing cups for students to start the process by planting seeds. Under the students’ care, the seeds germinate, grow into plants and are brought to the Farm for transplanting into the soil. Throughout the season we host any school groups that desire to participate in farm activities. We use these opportunities to teach the students about agriculture and the workings of a farm. We annually participate in a Cornell Cooperative Extension program called “Ag in the Classroom” which places farmers into schools where they educate students about agriculture.


The farm is always interested in working with interns over the season. Interns participate in all aspects of crop production, make deliveries of produce to the Food Bank, and work on farm improvement projects.


Make a cash donation to the farm.
