Raptor Creek Farm needs volunteers for huge harvest
The Raptor Creek Farm is producing a huge crop this year and volunteers are needed for the next few weeks to harvest the farm.
The farm typically harvests around 11,050 pounds of food this time of year but due to a 3.5 acre garden expansion approximately 58,000 pounds of produce must be harvested in the next few weeks.
Raptor Creek Farm provides food for the Josephine County Food Bank which feeds roughly 13,000 residents monthly through 10 food pantries, three meal sites and other supplemental agencies.
Volunteers are needed at the farm located at 3658 Upper River Road on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Those who want to volunteer can call the Josephine County Food Bank at 541-479-5556.
