Interns/Apprentices will have access to products from the farm. These include vegetables, eggs, honey and some meat. Some dry bulk goods will also be available. Interns are responsible for their own meals, however we do enjoy dining and cooking together and will occasionally share meals in our home.
In addition to experience growing food, we’re interested in candidates with the following skills (preferred, but not necessary): carpentry skills, small livestock management, dairy experience i.e. milking an animal.
You will be participating in a partial-full season of a local vegetable operation, learning daily life on a farm and all necessary operations of a direct to consumer system as well as selling to wholesale markets.
Apprentices must participate in the FARRMS Internship Program. The FARRMS Internship Program provides beginning farmers and ranchers real world training in sustainable agriculture. Participants in the FARRMS internship program live and work full time on a mentor farm for an entire growing season, receiving ongoing instruction and learn in-depth skills unique to the mentor farmer’s operation.
The goal of the FARRMS internship program is to prepare beginning farmers and ranchers with the fundamental skills and concepts of operating a successful farm.
Duties include, but are not limited to: seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting/washing/packing CSA boxes twice weekly, help at deliveries, rotational grazing management of goats, milk goats, occasional tractor work, assisting on occasional building projects, etc.
Apprentices will live in our 35’ camper, complete with full kitchen, bathroom and one shared bedroom as well as open living spaces. We will be accepting 1-2 apprentices for the season, so keep in mind you may be sharing the space. Couples and/or close friends are welcome.
This is a 3-6 month long internship. Applicants who can start in August/September are encouraged to apply. We can place interns anytime between May and November, but especially need help in the 2nd half of the season.
8-10 hours per day/5-6 days per week
