Our family farm serves the local community through a CSA Program, Saturday Hamitlon Farmers Market, twice weekly Farm Stand, tours and youth programs, organic egg and meat bird production, and more. We are striving to become an important part of the local food system and economy, as well as a sustainable small business. We want everyone to eat healthy, local foods! Our farm hosts tours and parties aimed at bringing families together to learn about their food and those who grow it. We want to be a model of sustainable farming practices while bringing our community together using food as the common denominator. Homestead Organics Farm is certified organic by the Montana Department of Agriculture and we are members of the Montana Sustainable Growers Union or Homegrown.
We welcome volunteers who are interested in becoming a part of our small farm community and are willing to make a minimum 3 week committment. Responsibilities include planting, monitoring, and harvesting of vegetable crops, as well as building relationships with CSA and market customers. Work week is Mon-Fri, approx 40 hours. Saturday is Market Day. One daily meal is shared by all and produce is provided as well. Accomodations include camper trailers, tipi, or tents. Volunteers receive food, lodging, and plenty of recreational opportunities. We have a fleet of bikes for you to use. Families are welcome as the farm is often full of kids!
The past season was filled with many veggies, lots of fun and plenty of learning. We could not grow enough food to meet the demand for local veggies! This year we will be working on breeding hertige turkeys, as well as ducks, geese, and a variety of chickens for both meat and eggs. We are excited to again offer our CSA on a sliding scale and to welcome folks to our Farm Stand on Tuesday and Thursday from 2-6PM. Till the snow melts in the Bitterroot Valley...

This is a local organic farm that I am thrilled to have so close. Recently moved to the valley and love having fresh grown food easily available. They grow a great variety of veggies along with organic chickens and turkeys. Very friendly people too!
