(Details) Merrifield Farm
20 Farm Lane
Cornish, ME 04020

Contact: Grace Pease
Phone: [Cell] 207-205-5263
Last Updated: 01-29-2018
Internship Starts: 05-20-18
Internship Ends: 10-31-18
Number of Interns: 5
App Deadline: 05-20-18

Stipend: Our apprentices receive free room and board on the farm and $200/week. We want everyone to be able to afford to do an apprenticeship and learn how to farm, so that is why we offer the $200/week; we hope it is enough to pay student loans, car payments, or other bills and not have to worry about draining your savings. All meals are included, as well as all the veggies from the farm you want to eat! At the end of the season we will give a small bonus based on how the season went and what we can afford - this will hopefully allow apprentices to have an easier transition onto their next adventure after the farm. Just to be fully transparent about money things, we also hire local help when we need it, and they will be paid by the hour based on experience level. It could be frustrating as an apprentice to see a high school kid making more money per hour then you when you are doing the same work, but they are not getting room and board, or the attention to education that apprentices get.
