Second Nature Farm is a 4-acre farm in Norton, Massachusetts (40 min south of Boston). Second Nature is looking for Farm Interns to work April – November, 2012 – 5 days/week for 8-10 hours/day. The Farm grows a diverse selection of heirloom vegetables and fruit, all of which are Certified Naturally Grown. They run a 70-member CSA, and also sell produce to restaurants and farmers’ markets. The farm is in its fourth year, and we are continually expanding our infrastructure and expertise with season extension methods so that those interested in eating local food have a greater opportunity to do so.
Interns will be involved in every aspect of the farm and will perfect a wide variety of skills: from field and greenhouse work to the display and marketing of products. This is a great opportunity for those interested in starting their own small farms to learn organic farming methods as well as how to begin and manage a small business. Interns should have a strong work-ethic as well as a sense of humor.
Compensation is $10/hr as well as free produce from the farm.
