We are a working farm and expect interns and apprentices to share our sometimes long days but rewarding work. A trial week ensures that everyone's expectations are clear. We draw up an agreement that outlines learning and work opportunities. We hold regular weekly planning meetings and share information at meals. We have an extensive library. We have been farming 28 years and taking apprentices for over 6 years. Contact us for an application form and a more detailed description of our farm.
