Internship Details:

We are looking for someone who has some farming experience and a strong interest in regenerative agriculture. Skills in farm infrastructure projects are essential–things like mending fences, installing trellises, installing irrigation, basic carpentry, etc. We need an independent worker who can work closely with the farm owner and other employees to consult about the strategic vision for the farm then implement that vision with a large degree of independence.

 

Weekly tasks will include planting, harvesting, collecting eggs, delivering CSA boxes, stocking farm stand, and working on a number of farm infrastructure projects such as installing new garden beds, building a walk-in cooler, etc. $15 hour plus vegetables and a share of any profits. We have not been profitable yet but we expect to make a profit in 2023. 10-20 hours per week depending on season and sales.


Educational Opportunities: There will be many opportunities to learn about regenerative agriculture as you work but this job will not be a good fit for someone with no prior experience.

Skills Desired: Some vegetable farming experience, efficiency, independence, and reliability.

Meals: No, but some shared vegetables

Stipend: $15-16 per hour

Housing: No
