Internship information
General Farm Description: At 2 acres in cultivation, we are an incredibly small and intimate farm. We farm without a four-wheel tractor, which means everything is done by hand, with simple tools, or with the help of our walking tractor. Think wheelbarrows, hoes, rakes, your two hands. We grow a diversity of crops but specialize in microgreens, salad greens, fresh roots, bunched greens, and greenhouse crops. While we sell wholesale to our local food coops and some restaurants, we grow primarily for our farmers markets and CSA program. We will be doing two farmers markets in peak season, along with a 125+ member CSA, and wholesale orders. The farm is located 10 minutes from downtown Olympia.
