Description Lamppost Farm is a non-profit, Christian educational farm raising grass-fed meats and hosting numerous community events throughout the season. We are looking for individuals (age 18 and older) interested in our year-long fellowship, as well as for our 3 month summer internship program. Fellows and summer interns will live with the Montgomery family, on site for the duration of their experience. Lamppost Farm exists to provide meaningful learning opportunities by engaging in purposeful and productive work, contagious relationships, and the celebration of "good ordinary food". Our goal is to use agriculture and its fruit to build individuals and groups in deeper relationship with themselves, one another, God, and God's creation. We raise Red Devon cattle, Coopworth sheep, pastured pork, 3,000-4,000 chickens per year as well as 200-300 turkeys. Although our main focus is grass-fed meats, we also have a thriving permaculture garden and numerous other elements of a sustainable lifestyle.
