Farm Apprenticeship available at Sand Springs Ranch
(45 km NW of Lac La Biche, Alberta, Canada)
Sand Springs Ranch uses a blend of Certified Organic, Biodynamic, and Holistic farm practices in the management of 5000+ acres.
We run a Certified Organic Market Garden, a Grass-fed Cow/ Calf Beef operation, and a Free-Range Chicken and Pork operation; all of which incorporate our own grain and vegetable seed production.
We are currently implementing a CSA Farm Share Program and are involved in two(2) Food Hubs. We also attend the local Farmers Market.
There are four(4) generations involved in various aspects of our farm, hence we are very family orientated.
Education, in all forms, is a serious priority for us as we live a holistic lifestyle and we wish to share our knowledge and learn from others.
Apprentice position will be asked to be actively involved in all areas of production, harvest, and marketing; expecting long hours/days during peak season. Room and board is available, with an hourly wage.
