Internship Details: We are excited to offer an apprenticeship opportunity for those interested in farming sustainably with draft horse power. You will see a working, financially viable veggie/flower/berry direct marketing farm that uses horse and human power. Come out of your internship ready to start your own business. You will participate in everything from field prep to planting to weeding to harvesting and prep to sales. We also do market and event flowers, so flower production and design will be part of the curriculum. Classes on other subjects will be offered through our cooperative intern education program with other area farms and WSU. You will visit most of the farms in the county during your time.
