Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: We are a small market farm intensively growing on 1 acre 12 months out of the year. Starting in 2020 we have grown exponentially the last few years and focus on vegetable production with some flower and herb production as well. We sell at several farmers markets and work closely with several chefs. Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown so along with sustainable growing practices we also focus on using no till systems and human scale growing.

We are currently looking for 1-2 farm apprentices for the 2024 season. Learn everything you need to know about small scale intensive vegetable production from starting seeds to harvest! We offer competitive pay and benefits based on the length of time you work here. You will be involved with pretty much every aspect of our farm and the sky is the limit as to what you can learn. We are looking for individuals who are motivated and enjoy working outside. Being able to lift 35lbs regularly and keeping up with the physical nature of the job is important. We are fairly flexible on hours/days worked depending on your situation and can offer up to full time during the main season and up to 30 hours/week the rest of the year. If you’re able to work Saturdays and run one of our farmers market booths that is a plus! Join our team and see the impact you can make in the communities we serve!
Educational Opportunities: Learn everything you need to know about small scale vegetable production while also learning about herbs and flowers. Learn marketing and sales skills and anything you need to know to start your own farm. Our system is designed to allow you to take the lead on how much you'd like to learn and what areas you want to focus on.
Skills Desired: A positive attitude, willingness to learn, and ability to work in a physically demanding environment.
Meals: Not regularly but on occasion.
Stipend: We offer competitive hourly pay with raises and benefits added the longer you work here.
