Volunteer at the Farm!

We are thrilled to welcome volunteers back to the farm! We can’t wait to have your helping hands here to harvest carrots and garlic scapes, pull weeds, and otherwise support our mission to grow top-quality food to donate to neighbors in need. 

When: Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9am to 12pm.

Where: Here at the farm! 6127 Mechanicsville Road, Mechanicsville, PA 18934. 

Why: Because people in poverty deserve fresh, nutritious food. Our non-profit farm grows organic vegetables, eggs and meat specifically for donation. Last year we gave away over 100,000 pounds of food. With your support, we’re on track to donate even more this year.

Please wear comfortable clothes and appropriate footwear for outdoor farm chores, bring your own water bottle and be prepared to get a little dirty! We provide tools and gloves. Our staff is vaccinated and all activities will be outdoors. Come alone, bring friends, come once, or come often! No registration needed. Please Note: volunteers age 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times. See you here!

 

 

Carversville Farm Foundation is a non-profit that grows fresh food specifically for donation to local communities in need. We run a certified organic farm where we raise top-quality vegetables, poultry, beef and eggs, and we donate over ninety percent of our harvests to Philadelphia-area soup kitchens and food pantries. In 2020, we gave more than 120,000 pounds of food, including pastured poultry and grass-fed beef and a wide variety of fresh produce. We also sustain the environment through our rigorous organic farming practices and train future farmers through our apprentice program.

We grow vegetables, hay, mushrooms, steers, chickens, turkeys and hens.

Our Farm Goals

Carversville Animal
Animals

Our livestock spend their days outside on pasture, often mixed together, ensuring that they always have access to green grass, fresh air and sunshine. We move them daily to evenly distribute their manure on the land to fertilize the soil and plants and reduce the risk of contaminating our streams.

Carversville Plants
Plants

We provide our soil, animals and vegetables with balanced minerals in the soil that allow them to thrive and self-regulate. We maximize the diversity of plant species and integrate organic and regenerative practices, such as productive riparian buffers, woodlands and perennial pastures.

Carversville Water
Water

Through our carefully planned management of the soil, plants, and animals on our farm, we can have a positive impact on the water cycle by reducing runoff and flooding while improving water quality and increasing groundwater recharge.

Carversville Soil
Soil

Using compost, reduced tillage, plants, and grazing animals, we grow deep, living soil that acts like a sponge to soak up rain and grow more plants for people and animals to eat. By increasing our organic matter by just 1%, we can infiltrate over 25,000 additional gallons of water per acre!
