MOFGA’s Apprenticeship Program is targeted for young adults, with or without previous farming experience, but all are welcome to apply. Apprenticeships may begin any time during the year, and last for any duration, but most farmers are looking for apprentices who will commit for the entire growing season (early March through late October). The usual apprenticeship is an immersive experience involving labor in return for room and board, instruction, a paid stipend and experience. Educational tours are offered every other week to apprentices throughout the growing season.
Educational Opportunities: The Farm Training Projects is a every other week farm tour series run by MOFGA to support apprentices in their farm education that runs May-September.
