Volunteers Help Guests Fully Experience the Farm
As the summer continues to heat up, the volunteers at Oliver Kelley Farm are doing a wonderful job helping guests experience everything there is to see and do at the farm.
We have Visitor Services Specialists who give orientations to guests, help stock the museum store, and assist in building windmills in the exhibits area.
Our School Programs Greeters are busy greeting, orienting, and guiding daycare and adult groups in the right direction for their tours and to their lunch areas.
The Golf Cart Drivers are kept busy moving guests from the Visitor Center to the Historic Farmstead. From mobility challenges to families, the guests have really appreciated the transportation.
All of the positions are vitally important to the everyday running of the farm. We do not know where we would be without our marvelous volunteers! Thank you!
