Yokna Bottoms Farm doesn’t exist in a bubble! We seek to be a fully integrated part of the community by hosting seasonal events – sometimes educational, sometimes just for fun: farm work days, field trips, potlucks, drum circles, and by supporting a growing community of farmers and groups working to promote sustainable agriculture in Oxford and around the state.
The farm has both a Facebook page and an email listserv with a weekly newsletter for all farm supporters. These resources will be used to provide continual information about activities on the farm and serve as a forum for information and discussion relevant to local, sustainable, food production.
We will occasionally be hosting or sponsoring periodic events to support local artisans and growers, raise awareness of and promote the farm, build community, and as fundraisers to support the farm.
In conjunction with our goals of supporting local foods and building community, we strive to be actively involved in community projects and efforts. In support of this effort, we encourage all food-shareholders to volunteer to support activities that promote local growers and artisans—ie, volunteer at local farmers markets, earth day activities, the Oxford Community Garden, and other activities and events in addition to volunteering at the farm itself. Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to come out and help in the fields. We work Monday through Saturday, and encourage everyone to stop by and visit. If you would like to volunteer or visit our farm, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 662-380-2367.
