Would you like to volunteer at Fairgate Farm?

We welcome volunteers to join us, whether you do it once … once in a while … or regularly!
Not only do our volunteers help us grow, harvest and deliver farm-fresh produce to non-profit agencies here in Stamford, but working at the farm also entitles you to enjoy the “fruits of your labors.” You’ll take home just-picked fruits, vegetables and herbs: Do it yourself Farm-to-Table Cuisine!

We have open volunteer hours on the following days and if these hours don’t work for you, let us know. We’ll be happy to discuss a different schedule. Email us at FairgateFarm@gmail.com for more information.

• Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am to 11 am
