The individual or couple must be hard working and be able to lift up to 50 lbs. Experience on a farm or managing a garden is a must.

No pets can be housed and no smoking in buildings. Candidates must have a valid driver’s license.
What Food for Thought Offers:
This would be ideal for an individual looking for experience in a farm to market value-added operation. You’ll experience farm production, value-added bottling all the way to marketing and sales of products. The intern will also have a chance to assist and participate in organic certification and inspection procedures. Food For Thought can offer the intern a $120 per week stipend plus rustic living conditions. They include a large 4-person camping tent provided by us, along with access to bathroom, shower, laundry, wireless internet and kitchen in our production facility.
