Call for Apprentices for 2014 Season
Green Meadows Farm is currently accepting applicants for our 2014 Apprentice Program. We grow vegetables for 350 CSA shares and a retail farm stand, raise pigs, laying hens, and lambs, maintain plots of small fruit and manage several acres of woodland. Ideal candidates are motivated, hard working, excited to tackle a variety of tasks in all kinds of weather and ready to put in a full season on a very diverse farm. A good sense of humor, the drive to constantly improve, and the ability to have a great time when its raining, the truck died, and the pigs got out, are as essential as a pulse.
We provide lots of opportunity for training, experience and education, and in exchange, we ask our apprentices to dig in and farm like they mean it. The apprenticeship is on-the-job training for candidates who are interested in a career in sustainable agriculture. In order to learn how to run a farm, apprentices participate in the work that keeps the farm going every day. Farming experience is preferred, but not required to apply.
