WWOOF

Mountain Dell Farm is a member of World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF), an organization that links volunteers with organic farmers and growers. We host and work with WWOOFers, providing a full day’s food and accommodation in exchange for half a day of educational farm work. During the course of their stay, WWOOFers have the opportunity to cook and savor seasonal produce at Mountain Dell’s lively table.

Interested in becoming a member of our CSA or working with us as a WWOOFer or as a farming intern? Please contact us.
