We purchase the majority of our hay from Woodruff, SC. We make the trip 4-6 times a year and it takes about 8 hours round trip. The trip also involves loading hay onto our trailer and unloading it into the hay barn upon return to the farm. A Hay Team member can help by traveling with us to Woodruff to assist in this all day adventure or by making themselves available to assist with the unloading when we return to the barn (usually around 6:00 PM).

How can I be a volunteer?
There are many volunteer opportunities for anyone and everyone. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact us with your particular area of interest and your availability and we will be happy to meet with you and discuss the endless possibilities. Please download the Volunteer Information Form, the Release Form and please complete them prior to your first visit.
When can I volunteer?
Volunteering is limited to open barn hours. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and we will set up a time to meet. We schedule volunteer hours according to the availability and need.
Can I help exercise your horses?
We appreciate your desire to share your time, skills, and attention with our horses. However, our program involves many children and adults in direct care and training with our horses. Our horses get more than enough daily exercise and training, so we currently have all of the assistance we need.
Can I bring my children when I volunteer?
Yes! We do not have childcare, but you are welcome to bring your kids. You may bring your kids, but please understand that they are your full responsibility and you must keep an eye on them at all times.
Can my youth group volunteer?
Absolutely! We encourage local youth groups to be involved in this community ministry.
What if I can't be there with my child volunteer?
Children need to come for at least the first few times with their parent, so that we can all evaluate their readiness to work independently without their parental involvement.
