Job Description:

Our internship is designed to give candidates a hands-on experience working in all facets of running a farm whether it’s weeding a bed of carrots, driving a tractor, watering a greenhouse, or managing a harvest. Farming requires lots of different skills and know-how that would be impossible to learn from books and workshops alone. Our internship provides a full-season opportunity on a working farm to explore the possibilities of a career in farming.

• Be in good physical condition
• Be ready to work outside in all kinds of weather (and be dressed accordingly)
• Be willing to commit to working on the farm for a full season
• Take full advantage of a working and learning experience on the farm! Make observations, ask questions, take notes, enjoy the subtle changes in the seasons, have fun working with the crew, eat a lot of fresh produce, and sleep well knowing you put in an honest days’ work!
