Internship Details: We would welcome 1 or 2 to our 100-acre certified organic farm for the 2003 growing season. Near Lake Huron, between Wingham and Goderich. Sheep, cows, pen of pigs, roasting & laying chickens. Belgian horses used in field, garden and woods. Small apple orchard, 2-acre CSA garden. Varied work and farm pond for swimming. Private bedroom in shared cabin. Family style meals with our meat & produce. Vegetarians accommodated. Passive solar home & greenhouse, photovoltaic irrigation pump. Towns for movies or theatre nearby. Internships are for 3 or 6 month periods; apprentices stay longer.

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.
