Join the farm!

 

Internship Details: Interns are involved in all aspects of the farm. We will seed and transplant together, manage pests, cultivate, irrigate, harvest, wash and pack together. Minimum 3 days/week, up to 5 days/week with rotating Saturday market duties. 

Internship Starts: April 1st - June 1st
Internship Ends: October - November

Meals: Meals are not provided but all farm products are available for interns at all times.

Skills Desired: We move quickly and work hard, in good and bad weather, and expect interns to do the same. We have a lot of laughs and a generally light hearted approach to farming, but never let that get in the way of accomplishing the task at hand. Experience with farm work or manual labor is preferred, but not required. An ideal intern is self-motivated and focused, willing to make mistakes and learn from them, and has a commitment to sustainable agriculture.

Educational Opportunities: Gain the knowledge to run a small vegetable farm. Learn succession planting, cover crops, rotations, greenhouse management, equipment operation and maintenance, marketing and more.

Stipend: Compensation based on experience and commitment. Stipend begins at $200/week for those with full time commitment.

Housing: Housing and shared expenses provided for the right candidate.
