Beyond Organics Farm Internship in Northwest Arkansas – 2017
Beyond Organics Farm is located in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Our mission at Beyond Organics Farm is to grow fresh, local, nutrient dense, and healthful food which does not take away from the land on which it was sown, but rather, creates a system in which that very food and its byproducts repair, replenish, and nourish the earth from which it is born.
Ideal candidate would be someone that wants to own their own farm. If there were a practicum in the degree of “how to farm” this would be it. We both work full-time off-farm jobs and need someone to be on the farm working to keep it in operation. We sell at two small markets and off farm. 80 acres and sell vegetables, beef, goat meat, eggs and chicken meat.
This is an opportunity to run a farm without owning the land. We would ultimately have managerial say in the operations but the intern will be providing most of daily labor and will be given decision making opportunities based on skills. This would be a learning opportunity to try out production methods to see what you prefer for your own farm. We will be working alongside you for guidance and education. We both interned on other farms before starting ours and understand what it can be like. This one will blend education with independent work.
We prefer someone with previous experience with farm work and animals. We rotationally graze and must be comfortable with moving cattle. Experience with organic hort production a plus. Hard, fast-paced worker will be highly appreciated!
We have a beautiful cabin in the woods with well water for bathing and washing dishes. Portable air conditioner and wood heat as needed. Cabin has private bathroom, kitchen and porch with view and secluded from main portion of farm for privacy. Clothes washer/dryer in main house is available for use. All products produced by farm are available to the intern for free, including meat and eggs. We are 25 minutes from downtown Fayetteville.
A small stipend will also be available based on experience. We ideally want someone from April – September but are extremely flexible. Please submit applications by March 1st.
