Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I buy what you produce (eggs, chickens, veggies, beer, etc)?
At this time, no. We currently give away what we produce for free. Our volunteers enjoy both a free lunch while they are here, and each volunteer goes home with a bag of veggies and sometimes some eggs. The beer is free; but, can only be enjoyed at the Farm and you must present an ID (regardless of how old you think you look).
Giving stuff away for free helps our Farm grow, and we may at some point get to a size where we can sell what we produce.
If volunteering doesn’t work for you and you would like to taste what we produce click here to learn about getting a free Farm breakfast when you stay with us!
2. I can’t find your address, where are you located?
For planning purposes we are located near downtown Santa Rosa. Our previous location was in Cupertino.
3. What is the best way to visit?
The only way to visit the Farm currently is to book the Sangria Room through Airbnb. Tours and Volunteering coming soon… Like us on Facebook to be the first to know when: www.facebook.com/HummingbirdFarm
Airbnb – Get the hour long Farm tour, a delicious Farm fresh breakfast, and a great nights sleep in a upscale room in the heart of wine country. Bring your pet, we love dogs, cats, birds, hamsters…!
Farm Tours – Great for small groups and families with kids. Learn all about the Farm without the commitment of volunteering. (We also offer tours for large groups)
Volunteer – Great for energetic individuals or couples. Help out the Farm with your time instead of a donation.
4. How do you make money for the Farm’s operating costs?
The only money our Farm takes in, is from donations from people like you. This is why every donation that comes in is so important to us, whether it comes as money or in the form of items that we need. Every dollar that comes in helps us keep educating our community!
5. What can I donate to help?
Monetary donations help pay for chicken feed, necessary supplies and tools, and new projects and expansions. You can make a donation when you visit the Farm or online with PayPal here.
6. Can I bring friends with me to volunteer?
Only if they apply too.
If you have applied and reserved your spot for the next volunteer orientation, you are welcome to tell your friends about the Farm and encourage them to apply as well. However, they cannot come until they have made their own reservation by sending us an application email and receiving an invitation to the orientation, if there are still open slots.
7. Can kids come to the Farm?
Our Farm is fun and very educational for children. They are welcome on Farm Tours.
For safety, those under 18 years old are not allowed to come to the Farm on volunteer days.
8. Can you take in my hen/rooster that I can no longer care for?
Unfortunately, no. Our chickens have been hand raised by us to be friendly. We also cannot risk any illnesses being brought into our flock.
