Rolling Fork Organic Farm Internship in Kentucky for 2015
We are a certified organic farm in the knobs of western Boyle County, Kentucky. We deliver twice a week to a co-op in Lexington & have a CSA in Danville. We have 2 internships available.
No experience is required though, a positive outlook & willingness to learn are helpful. Interns receive a weekly stipend, a room in the intern cabin, & any of the food we grow. Interns are responsible for any other groceries they may want (coffee, cereal, bread, snacks). Interns work 35 hours per week, harvesting, washing & packing produce, delivering to our markets & general farm maintenance. Personal transportation is not required & we can arrange pickup in Lexington or Louisville.
The skills you will learn @ Rolling Fork Organic Farm will enable you to manage & grow a profitable farm on your own. We are striving to be as sustainable as possible, we use cover cropping as a means to increase soil fertility & weed suppression. We have pasture raised pigs that are also part of our fertility plan. Crop rotation & companion planting are also part of our growing schedule.
Summer harvest is increasing, so we are harvesting tomatoes, squash, beans, eggplant & more as well as caring for our tomatoes & starting construction on a small greenhouse. Fall seeding is also underway & an intern would basically get to experience an entire season in a few months, from seed to harvest.
