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 are thrilled to welcome volunteers to the farm! We can’t wait to have your helping hands here to harvest carrots and kale, 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!

You can help. We welcome volunteers on the farm every Wednesday and Saturday. We also welcome donations to help fund our non-profit, to help cover essential costs for seed, feed, tools, equipment, delivery expenses and more. We also sell a small portion of our harvests through our farm store and reinvest 100% of sales into our mission, raising even more food to donate to neighbors in need.
