Yokna Bottoms features shareholder memberships for its premium community supporters with regular weekly distributions of local, organic food grown on the farm. This is one of the best ways to experience all Yokna Bottoms has to offer. For more information, go to the "Purchase a Share" tab at the top of the page.
Yokna Bottoms Farm also provides work opportunities for students at the University of Mississippi and members of the LOU community. Volunteering at the farm allows people to learn about how local food is grown and have a small part in it.
We typically have 1-2 interns at a time, with some being paid or unpaid depending upon hours of work. Unpaid interns have the option of participating in a work share for their time.
We participate in two farmers' markets in the LOU community: OXCM and Midtown Market. OXCM is open at the Pavilion on University every Tuesday from 3pm-6:30pm. Midtown Market happens every Saturday from 7am-11am in the parking lot by BBB.
We also sell to local restaurants and grocers when the harvest is aplenty.
