Devon Point Farm, in Woodstock, CT is a 'beyond organic' farm with a 200-member CSA Vegetable Farm Share Program. We also raise Grass Fed Beef, and all-natural Chicken & Pork, we have a Farm Camp for children in summer, a farm-to-table dinner, and a Fall pumpkin patch.
We are committed not only to growing healthy (chemical-free, organic) food and feeding our local community, but to educating the new farmers, agricultural entrepreneurs, nutritionists and agricultural policy makers of tomorrow.
Our in-depth apprentice program immerses individuals with a serious interest in sustainable food production, with more than theoretical knowledge… our approach is a practical, hands-on education that takes them from the soil and roots of a farming operation to the business fundamentals they need to know to make their own farming business a financially viable success.
For others, this experience will help shape their ideas on government’s hand in agriculture or it will help them speak with credibility on subjects like sustainability, and food systems, nutrition and policy.
Apprentice positions are from April – October. Intern positions are from May – August. Stipend, housing and food from the farm available.
