Bee Fields Farm is a small Biodynamic farm in Wilton NH. We are offering internship opportunities to learn and work in its beautiful 2-acre garden. Our farm that goes into its 3rd season in 2014 is a diverse small farm. We grow vegetable for a small, year round CSA (about 20 families) that works with the ideals of the threefold social order. We grow more than 100 different medicinal herbs to be used in tea blends, salves, powdered herbs and more. We are home to three goats and 90 chicken that graze the stone walls and provide us with manure.
If you have given serious thought to becoming a small-scale farmer and want to learn more, then consider applying for this demanding, hands-on exploration of small-scale organic and biodynamic farming. We are looking for a full-time intern that will assist Elad with the daily tasks of greenhouse sowing and management, building raised beds, hand sowing and transplanting, irrigation, weeding, pest management, harvest, post-harvest handling, and herbs propagation, planting, maintenance, and harvest. The majority of our work is done by hand to build strong bodies and an intimate relationship with the soil, plants and animals. We apply biodynamic and organic principles in managing the farm.
You will learn:
* Holistic methods for stewarding the land.
* Biodynamic farming practices.
* Integrating vegetables crops with medicinal herbs.
* Canning and freezing for the winter.
* Preparing remedies from herbs.
* Bread making with sourdough
Our workweek is Monday through Friday and half day on Saturday. There will also be shared weekend animal and greenhouse chores.
We offer room, board and a small stipend. Access to all veggies, eggs and herb that grow in the garden. Most of our meals are vegetarian.
