THE CAMPBELL FARM serves as a home base for people wishing to get involved in Mission outreach. They may participate in a variety of services coordinated through local volunteer and mission agencies, returning to the farm at the end of the day for rest, good food, worship and Bible study.
Youth and adults from across the country come to work on the farm and serve the community here on the Yakama Indian reservation, helping the elderly and disabled, feeding the hungry and homeless, working with children and learning to care for the earth.
