As of August 16, 2020 the Friends of Kinder Farm Park's Farm Education & Livestock Group has 250 human volunteers take care of: 17 chickens, 5 rabbits, 4 beef cows, 4 dairy cows, 2 breeding sows (pigs), 2 alpaca, 3 breeding ewes (sheep), 3 dairy goats, 9 eco goats, and a handful of quail. The Friends group pays for these animals, and their care and feeding, via fund raising and via donations from the general public.
In 2019, the Farm Education & Livestock Group used five tons of feed, 300 bales of hay, and 30 600lb round bales of hay. Ten dollars buys a 50lb bag of feed or two bales of hay.
To donate money for the animals, click the Donate button to be redirected to Paypal. Then, on the Paypal page, select "Use this donation for -> Farm Education & Livestock Group". Undesignated donations will be used for other Friends expenses, such as tractor maintenance, farmhouse maintenance, sawmill maintenance, insurance, and events.
Thank you for your generosity to the park and animals that are enjoyed by so many visitors. We hope to be able to resume our normal activities soon.
