Hawthorne Valley Farm, a diversified, Demeter certified Biodynamic farm, is looking for one whole farm apprentice, starting now through at least Thanksgiving, 2012. Please see our website, www.hawthornevalleyfarm.org for more detailed information. Our apprentices work with and learn about the interrelationships between our milking herd of 60 grass-fed cows, our rotational grazing system, the twelve-acres of mixed vegetable fields, and get an overview of the administration of our 285-member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Our apprentices are expected to work well with others, to have some patience and a drive to get things done. A sense of humor is always useful!
Hawthorne Valley Farm is a participating Mentor Farm in the North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program (NABDAP). For more details on the farm and the apprenticeship, please visit the farm's profile in our NABDAP program pages.
