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.
Communication: The farm has a blog website, 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.
Events: We will 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.
Community Service: 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. We will provide a schedule of activities and events through our communication services and post weekly work hours on our blog.
Angel Shares: If you would like to purchase an additional food-share to be donated at the farm’s discretion to a family in need, you will be able to do so at the bottom of our Order Form. For just ¾ the cost of a full share, with the farm covering the difference, you can give a gift that is truly priceless this season. Healthy, nutritious food is often difficult to come by for those with financial difficulties and with your help we can make sure everyone in our community is eating healthy!
