animals on the farm

In addition to our U-Pick and P-Patch gardens, the Farm at Water’s Edge is also home to many animals.

Youth 4-H Programs

Many of our chickens, goats, and alpacas are used as 4-H Projects by local youth belonging to the Farm at Water’s Edge 4-H Club. 4-H members come to the Farm on Mondays and Thursdays for 4-H meetings where they learn about livestock, gardening, and record keeping. The kids work with their 4-H project animal throughout the year and show their animal every year at the Mason County Fair.

Please contact our 4-H Club Leader, Mendy Harlow at 360-275-3575 ext. 123 or email her for more information or to get involved. 

Plan your visit


Our non-profit farm relies heavily on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Volunteers are always welcome to participate in any farm activity, including vegetable garden maintenance, animal care, construction projects, building and grounds maintenance, and data entry. We also serve as a Master Gardeners Volunteer Site where Master Gardeners-in-training can volunteer their time in order to meet their Master Gardener certification requirements.

Farm Tours

The Farm is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Personalized tours of the garden, greenhouse, field production, and animals are available during select hours. Contact us for more information or to schedule a tour.
