Internship Details:

Employees take part in almost every aspect of the farm. This includes starting crops in the greenhouse, doing field prep, direct seeding crops, harvest and post harvest handling, and attending farmers markets each week. Employees learn tractor operations. A position on the farm is perfect for someone with a strong interest in farmers markets and direct sales.

Educational Opportunities: Because employees work on most aspects of the farm, there is a lot of experience to be gained here. No formal education is provided, but there is a lot to be learned.

Skills Desired: Experience is a plus, but not as important as a good attitude, an ability to appreciate others, a friendly demeanor, and a willingness to work hard and give a care.

Meals: Not strictly, though depending, we may share lunch making responsibilities on work days. Some dry staples (beans and rice, etc) are provided, as well as vegetables from the farm.

Stipend: $2200/month

Housing: Housing is provided in the town of Frederic, 3 miles from the farm. There is no rent deducted from paychecks. This house is equipped, has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a nice kitchen, laundry, and WiFi. It is near a lake, a park and is close to downtown.
