Volunteers will be interacting with the public and representing Jubilation Farms. 

Important Information

Volunteer times are 9am-12pm. We start promptly at 9am and work until the chores are finished, whether that takes 1 hour or all 3 hours we have allotted for our Work Day. 

Once you have registered for the days you would like to volunteer for, you are added to our Work Day list, and no follow up is necessary. 

If you are going to miss the Work Day, or will be late, please let us know so that we are able to adjust our tasks for the number of volunteers. The best way to reach us is via text. Our phone number is listed on the registration form.

If you are sick or you have a child that is sick, PLEASE be courteous and keep us and the other volunteers safe and stay home. 

If you have a child at home who is sick, please do NOT bring your other children, even if they appear fine. They are likely just not showing symptoms yet. As a courtesy to us and our other volunteers, please stay home. 

Lastly, please be aware that we are a real working farm. All children must be supervised by parents and ready and willing to do farm work. If children are uncooperative or wandering around the property, we may ask you to leave so that nobody gets hurt.

ALL guests are required to fill out a waiver to be on property. Please bring the waiver with you to your Work Day.
