Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Spring Creek Farm sits on 125 acres of beautiful, rolling farmland in Eastern Pennsylvania. We raise grass-fed beef and organic laying hens on 100ish acres, and grow a diverse variety of certified organic vegetables on another 10 acres for our CSA program and offsite farmers markets. We grow according to sustainable, organic (some would say regenerative) standards, and continually strive for harmony with nature. It is hard work, and we're honored to do it

Internship Starts: April 3rd, 2023
Internship Ends: Nov 22, 2023
Number of Internship Available: 5
Application Deadline: March 2023
Minimum Length of Stay: Full season (8 month commitment)
This position is an immersive farm experience, and an introduction to organic vegetable production. Our interns gain experience with all aspects of organic farming at a small scale – from seed to distribution – and will work as a team to successfully provide fresh, nutritious food for 300+ families every week! Our interns learn the ropes of seeding, planting, cultivation, pest and disease management, harvest, post harvest, and farm market operations. Our goal is to help you build a foundation of knowledge through practical experience, while balancing the demands of production and the need to be economically sustainable.
It takes a lot of elbow grease to grow great vegetables! We work long hours, outdoors, in all weather – heat, humidity, cold, rain, and sometimes snow. All applicants must be physically able to complete a season of farm work (i.e. physical labor), communicate clearly and with respect for others, and be motivated to work efficiently as a team *or alone* in a fast-paced environment. A sense of humor and can-do attitude are necessary on any farm team. Previous experience with manual labor, landscaping, construction, or commercial kitchens is valuable, but not required. A can-do attitude and strong desire to explore farming as a career is a must!
Working hours fluctuate with the weather and seasonal demands, but our average week is 7am-5pm, 5 days/wk. Compensation includes a monthly stipend, communal on-site housing (includes utilities), plus as many ugly veggies as you can eat and 20% discount on our meat and eggs.
Join us in building community around healthy soil and happy people! To apply, please email Hannah at email@example.com with your resume and a letter of interest .

Educational Opportunities: We take regular field trips to tour other local, sustainable, small-farm operations during the season, and have a number of farm-focused books in our communal library
Skills Desired: It is important that everyone on the crew is organized, observant, and working together to complete tasks efficiently and on time. Previous experience with manual labor, landscaping, construction, or commercial kitchens is very valuable
Meals: No, but interns are welcome to as many veggies as they can eat and get discounts on meat and eggs
