Internships are available for the 2017 farming season April through October.
We are a small Certified Naturally Grown Farm in central Virginia working towards our USDA Organic Certification and are offering an opportunity to work with an innovative farmer to learn sustainable farming at a small scale. Focusing on minimal tillage, natural mulches and maximized yields per square foot you will be learning how to produce high yields while minimizing day to day maintenance such as weeding.
Interns work on our farm planting and harvesting in exchange will receive knowledge, housing and a $800-$1000 per month stipend (depending on level of farming experience) with a CSA share provided.
Interns must have a strong work ethic and enjoy hard, rewarding work. Interns must be able to lift 50 pounds. We need folks who are positive thinkers and find joy in working outdoors. Applicants must have a strong attention to detail. Although we do most of our hard work in the morning or late afternoon hours to a high tolerance of heat is a must. We prefer non-smokers.
Interns will have private air conditioned housing in a separate 2 story solar off grid house. Wooded lot for hiking and a large pond for fishing and canoeing.
