Wagner Farm Volunteer Opportunities

Find your inner farmer at Historic Wagner Farm, one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County!  We’re open daily to the public for recreation and learning opportunities.  Our mission is to help people connect with their food, their farmers, and how food gets from the farm to their table.  Wagner Farm has over 100,000 visitors annually, including school children, families, special event attendees, community gardeners, farmers’ market shoppers and participants in a CSA that is run by the award winning Be@the Farm partnership with NSSED.  We raise crops as well as dairy cows, draft horses, chickens, pigs and lambs.  Help preserve our agricultural heritage by joining our dynamic volunteer program! Please note: Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age, and volunteers who work around livestock or at the Glenview Farmers Market must be at least 18 years of age.
