Type of farm?
Fellows (1 year) will cover the cost of living with onsite housing and a minimal education fee of $100 for the first three months. As skills are learned, their cost of living becomes absorbed by Lamppost Farm. Interns will cover the cost of food and housing.

Butchering On Farm
Our farm offers a highly communal and educational experience, sharing life together, including housing, meals, work and play. It will be an intense discipleship opportunity as farming is practiced through the lenses of Christian faith. We expect full-time involvement but encourage part-time work off of the farm as well. We typically operate 8-4 M-F with some flexibility as our weekends often require store management as well as on-farm weekend events.
We are looking for individuals for our 1 year fellowship program, as well as our 3-month summer internship program (June-August).
8 hours per day, 5 to 6 days a week
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.
