Earth Harvest Farm in Lake Geneva, WI is a small family farm providing Certified Naturally Grown vegetables to local families via our 18-week 60 member CSA. We are looking for 2-3 hard-working & fun-loving interns for our 2010 season. We are looking for 2 hard working and dedicated individuals (or a couple) who want to participate as co-farmers in the fields, with our chickens, at farmers markets and CSA distribution.
I am a young farmer, 26, and so am relatively new at farming, with about 4 years under my belt. We are always learning from our mistakes and constantly improving what we do. We provide our shareholders with great customer care and educational opportunities as well as a work-trade option. Come join us in Southeastern Wisconsin on a beautiful farm.
