Because the farm is very small, interns will usually work either one-on-one with the head farmer, or alone. The education is informal, consisting of daily repetition of and encounter with the aspects of farming, along with frequent explanations of what is going on, and why. The farmers explicitly welcome and encourage questions throughout the course of the internship. The farm has been in operation for five years, and they are glad to share their knowledge and experience with interested people.
The farm doesn’t yet have housing available for interns, but will be glad to help a candidate seek housing in the area. For the sake of independence, a bicycle or car is highly recommended. Hours for work can vary according to the intern or the season, but Sundays are always free. The farm offers a stipend of up to $1,000/month, depending on need and ability.
To apply, please e-mail 1) a curriculum vitae, 2) two references, and 3) a brief explanation of why you are interested in the internship. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please call at (302) 540 0912. Tjhey are hoping to finally hire an intern by the beginning of February, so please send an application by January 29th.
