We are looking for self-motivated interns/apprentices with a positive attitude and good work ethic, who would like to work on a bio-intensive, small-scale, family farm. Responsibilities may include soil preparation, planting, cultivation, cover cropping strategies, harvesting, and marketing through our 325+ member CSA and two Farmers’ Markets. Interns/apprentices must be able and willing to work long hours and be willing to live semi-communally with some cooking and cleaning responsibilities. We offer room, board, and a negotiable stipend dependent on experience and performance. Accommodations include farmhouse space, sheds, and insulated studio loft space. Preference will be given to interns/apprentices who can live on-site and work at least 5 1/2 days per week. Basic season is from April through November, but we will consider anyone willing to work at least 3 or more of these months. We also do offer some work and accommodations during the off season. This internship is experiential and will focus on hands-on application of sustainable agriculture practices.
Currently we have openings for summer internships at our farm until Thanksgiving. Please feel free to look over the following applications and internship description to consider applying. We have been having intermittent problems with our email provider accepting some email addresses, so if you have not received an answer within a week, please call or text Deb’s phone number at 734-385-6748 and leave a message. We would be happy to hear from you and call you back.
