Temple-Wilton Community Farm is seeking Vegetable/Livestock/Cheese Apprentices for 2019

Temple-Wilton Community Farm is seeking apprentices for the 2019 growing season, running from the beginning of April through the end of October. We are looking for 3 vegetable apprentices, 1 livestock apprentice, and 1 cheese making apprentice. There are also possibilities to stay on longer. Inquire for more information.

Vegetable work includes all aspects of planting, cultivating, and harvesting over 40 different vegetables and herbs for our community farm members, as well as regular applications of the biodynamic preparations. Livestock work includes all aspects of milking and caring for an approximately 15 cow dairy herd, and attending to a flock of laying hens. Cheese making work includes all aspects of making and marketing a great variety of hard and soft cheeses, as well as yogurt.

Throughout the first two weeks of April we will take time to hone our observational skills and renew our understanding of biodynamic agriculture for the upcoming season. During the main season, the rhythm of the work is determined entirely by the needs of farm, so our schedules must be very flexible. However, you can anticipate having one day off per week. To support this work you will be provided with a private bedroom in a beautiful apartment, access to all foods produced by the farm, WiFi, and a base stipend of $500/month.

If you are interested in working with us in the vegetable fields or with the livestock please contact Jacob Holubeck at jaholubeck@gmail.com, or call him at 603-831-1213.

If you are interested in making cheese with our small and diverse creamery, please contact our friendly cheese maker Benjamin at bjonas.meier@gmail.com.
