How to Apply

What We Are Looking For…

Our farms are small, but the work is intensive and demanding. Farmers are often called upon to do different and sometimes tedious jobs in all kinds of weather. Our apprentices and interns must be reliable, on-time, creative, passionate, flexible, quick, and have a good sense of humor in spite of the hard work!

Finding a match between the farm and apprentices/interns is extremely important to the success and satisfaction of both parties. We ask that you fill out the application carefully. This process will assist both of us in determining if the farm is the right place for you.

What You Should Know

Read our Apprentice and Intern Policies which clearly goes over all aspects of the internship/apprenticeship experience and what we expect.

How To Apply

We recommend that you only apply to one position at one farm. However, if multiple positions work for you, you may submit more than one application either of the contacts below. If you do not decide on one position, your application will be reviewed by the staff and a position will be decided for you.

Finding a match between the farm and apprentices/interns is extremely important to the success and satisfaction of both parties. We ask that you fill out the application carefully. This process will assist both of us in determining if the farm is the right place for you.
