Volunteering at

Ray of Light Farm

For the next foreseeable future, the farm will not be accepting any new volunteers. We thank you for applying during these difficult times. We will announce here, and on our Facebook page, when we will be accepting new volunteers.
Thank you again for your support! 💖

Are you interested in volunteering?


Volunteering can be a fun and rewarding adventure here at Ray of Light Farm! We have many areas of farm life for which you can volunteer: all the basic barn chores such as mucking stalls, cleaning and filling water buckets, moving hay, feeding and watering small animals, property and grounds maintenance (which includes landscaping, fixing things, etc), docents for tours of the farm, assisting with therapeutic riding, etc. We also have many office related volunteer opportunities. Help is also needed with our annual events and fundraisers, childrens programs, and SO MUCH more. Please reach out to us with your interests! 

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, ages, skills and experiences. We do ask that all children under 14 be accompanied by a parent while volunteering.

We do our very best to personalize your volunteer experience from the time you come meet us for the very first time, to filling your application, through volunteering at the farm. As far as we are concerned, this is all a team effort! We are all a big family here, and cannot wait for you to be a part of it!

Come join our team!

Ready to come and play with us?


Now that you're ready to start your volunteer journey with us, please give us a call. You can also contact us via Facebook, or send us an email. Step two will be scheduling a volunteer orientation appointment at your convenience, so we can meet & greet, and talk about what your interests are. From there on, together we will choose a day for you to start, and warmly welcome you to our team! 

You can also meet our Staff, and and some of our Volunteers here online.

We look forward to meeting you!
