Your generous support for the farm’s ongoing work and future growth are key to our robust, unique farming program. Financial and skilled volunteer contributions are greatly appreciated. The projected total costs of individual projects are listed, but any level of financial contribution is welcome to help us reach our goals. We also provide a list of skilled volunteer work needed. See the wish lists below.


Financial Contribution Wish List

Seeds & Plants for a Year-$1,000

Many seeds go into making the annual garden a success each year including unique and heirloom varieties. Learn more about the annual garden.




Solar Sheep for a Year-$1,500

Provide a small herd of spring lambs. Lambs replace lawnmowers as they graze under the solar array for the summer and provide fresh, pastured meat for students to consume in the fall.





Farm to Table Co-op Position-One Term $3,300 

Fund a student to work on the Farm and in the Kitchen for an entire term during their co-op experience. During this experience, students are immersed in Antioch’s sustainable food and farming programs.  



Food Forest Nut Grove-$4,000

Expand our southern food forest to include a 1.5-acre nut grove. Trees and shrubs in this forest will include hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and many more. Learn more about the food forest.





Hoop House-$7,000

Extend our growing season by providing an additional passive hoop house. Learn more about our current hoop house.





Barn Raising-$250,000

Help us raise a traditional timber frame barn to provide shelter for endangered heritage animals. Professional builders will lead the build while faculty incorporate hands-on student opportunities into the process.  Alumni and community members will also be involved in the barn raising.
