Internship information
General Farm Description: "The vegetables, herbs and fruit at East Branch Farms are grown in the East Branch River valley, Northwest Catskills, approx 1600'. Over 360 million years ago the Catskills region was an inland sea and site of a devonian forest. The ancient soils were first cultivated by the Lenni Lenape women, growing corn, beans and squash. Today the landscape is a diverse patchwork of small farms, fields and forests where a delicious variety of food is produced. Diversity is high on the value chain here with multiple enterprises including The Straight Out of the Ground CSA, Kimchee Harvest LLC, produce grown for farmers markets, produce grown for local and NYC restaurants and our little farmstand.

“Organic vegetable Farm and added value food producer looking for 2019 seasonal help.

We are looking for bright enthusiastic people to join our team for the 2019 summer season. We are a specialty produce farm, kimchee makers and cafe operators in the western catskills. The job will be a cross section of veggie production (farm work), kitchen prep (kimchee making) and food service (cafe and catering). A typical work week might be a little of all the above. Some weeks might be more of one or the other but we hope to balance out the workload. We expect a 5 day work week and encourage side projects like art, music, writing and certainly any kind of field research related to farming. The season runs from June through early November. We are flexible with the durations but will give priority to those willing to commit to the whole season. Comfortable room and lots of good food are part of the program and you can expect to leave with some money in your pocket. We will work out compensation plans based on experience.

farming, cooking, and hospitality experience is a big plus.

Please include a cover letter about what you are up to and what you hope to accomplish with this opportunity.
