Livestock on the Farm
Keeping livestock at Zenger Farm is a community endeavor. Visiting youth help to move the chickens from one field to another and the Bee Group tends to bee needs. By creating direct opportunities for shared ownership of farm livestock, Zenger Farm increases educational opportunities and diversifies farm income.
A diverse flock of laying hens is tended by the Zenger Farm Egg Cooperative, a group of community members who share in the care of the flock and the bounty of eggs. Members take on chores one day a week at sunrise or sunset, pay dues to cover supplies, and get a 1/14 share of the eggs laid. If you are interested in joining the Egg Co-op, please add your name to our waitlist.
The honey bee hives at Zenger Farm are managed by a committee of Portland Urban Beekeepers(PUB). The PUB Zenger committee hosts work parties at Zenger Farm. Check the PUB calendar for upcoming work parties.
