flower with text to support Smiling Hogshead Ranch on giving tuesday

This #GivingTuesday we would love if you would consider us in your donation plans. We have been busy closing the farm down for the season, planting spring bulbs, and have recently added care taking for our long time community cat population. We are all volunteers doing our best with the generosity of our community to further our mission. You can click the “donate” button on the right, or find us on Venmo or PayPal.  Thank you kindly.




Food-Scrap Drop-off hours from dawn to dusk, everyday. 

During the winter, composting doesn’t stop. 

Please, make sure you are only bringing us your food scraps. No plastic! (including those “compostable” bags).

  • Please chop your scraps up in to smaller pieces as is possible.  
    Please, remember that composting takes infrastructure and labor – consider making a donation to support this work.

Our Mission

Smiling Hogshead Ranch is an urban farm collective whose mission is to create a culture that empowers and connects our communities through ecology, education and collaboration.


We build

…sustainable infrastructure using recycled and reclaimed materials. 

We educate

…through member-driven workdays and classes to share our environmental knowledge.

We organize

…events to bring together environmentally active citizens and community-based organizations.

We grow

…food and lots of it! Our garden is overflowing with delicious, natural, organic grub for our members.

We compost

…six different ways! Residential food scraps and yard clippings return to the soil via 3 bin, microorganisms, and even worms.
