Review for Helpers Of Our Farm, Bolivia, NC, USA
I have been volunteering at H.O.O.F. once a week for the past few months. The farm is truly a special place and the owners put their hearts into every piece of it. I look forward to my volunteer day because I get out of the office and get to work with Petunia the pig each week. Our goals are for her to be able to wear a harness (to be taken off site for education) and to be able to have her nails trimmed without sedation. So each week, I bring carrot slices as incentives and I squeeze her hooves, practice her giving hoof on command, practice wearing the harness and walking around the farm on the leash. Petunia is so incredibly smart (and stubborn!) I try to outsmart her and each week we make more and more progress. I also scrub the water containers and Petunia's swimming pool. The short time I spend there each week is incredibly fulfilling and feels great to know I am helping an non-profit organization, and family-run operation, as awesome as H.O.O.F.
