Apple Orchard Work Days — Volunteer Sign Up

Red Apple Detail

We manage an abandoned apple orchard of about a hundred trees. This year appears to have a bumper crop. We need your help clearing out brush, wild grapes, and other growth. In exchange, we’ll be hosting a apple-picking and cider-making event in September and volunteers will be invited!

Our first meet up will be this Saturday, Sep. 3 from 9a-12p. See below to sign up.


The orchard is just down the road from us in Cooksville, Wisconsin. We’re a 30-minute drive south out of Madison. Exact directions will be provided to volunteers.

We’ll provide tools for cutting and moving brush, grass, and other vegetation as well as safety equipment, but please bring along your own if available. We’ll have water and snacks, but again, please feel free to bring more along.
