General Visiting

If you'd just like to drop in, we welcome you to come by and shop at Thistle Farms during any open hours ( Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm). Kristin & Jen run the front office and will be happy to help you. Or stop in at Thistle Stop Cafe (Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm;  Saturday 8:00 am - 4:00 pm), only two doors down, for a meal or a cup of tea. Please know that we love having visitors, but as a working business, we are unable to offer last-minute tours.

If you or your organization would like a more thorough orientation, consider our Education Workshops, which offer an all-day immersion experience.


Specific tasks available to volunteers depends greatly upon upcoming manufacturing needs and the time of year. Christmas and Mother’s Day are especially busy times for our community. All volunteer opportunities for the upcoming week will be listed on Twitter each Friday. Watch your own Twitter feed for Friday volunteer listings, or view our Twitter feed below.

Due to limited space, please contact  volunteerinfo@thistlefarms.org to reserve your spot.
