We are now accepting applications for our 2024 farm crew positions!

We are no longer calling our farm crew positions "apprenticeships." While they are educational in nature, they are not the age-old arrangement of shadowing a master craftsperson in their work. Rather, they are an apprenticing to the land and to the farm systems that have been developed here over the last 13 years. The work is similar to that of a farmhand position, but generally more varied and with more responsibility. These positions are learn-by-doing immersive experiences, ideal for self-motivated folks who want to step into the responsibility of running the day-to-day work of a farm without the administrative duties and financial risk of business ownership, and with the support and camaraderie of a crew of other beginning farmers.
