History & Mission

Scott Wilson Photography

Farm Hands is a community organization founded by farmers, eaters, business leaders & food system planners from around the Flathead Valley. Our interests include ecologically-sound, socially just, and economically viable ways of growing food and making it accessible to everyone.

Our mission is to connect people to the source of their food and to those who produce it through education, outreach, and market support. Our work is focused on increasing good food access, supporting food security programs, and youth empowerment.

We work to achieve our mission and help our community through provide food access support for the purchasing of local foods, offering resources to beginning farmers, supporting agricultural educational opportunities at Flathead Valley Community College, hosting events and presentations, collaborating with other organizations and agencies, engaging volunteers, writing grants, and working with youth.
