Temple Wilton Community Farm Vegetable Apprenticeship

The Temple-Wilton Community Farm is a year-round CSA with about 130 acres of pasture, hayfields, vegetable fields, and woods. We provide about 100 households with vegetables, milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs, meat and assorted fruits. 

We produce about 3 acres of vegetables and we milk from twelve to sixteen cows, as well as keeping calves and replacement heifers.  We also keep 200 pasture-raised layer chickens. The creamery processes approximately 200 gallons of cow’s milk into yogurt and cheese every week and currently makes 14 different types of cheese, ranging from soft to extra hard.

​As an intern with us, you will be provided with housing with other farmworkers, access to all foods produced by the farm, and a stipend which begins with a trial month at $1,000 and after that becomes $1,250 per month.


The vegetable internship will cover the daily tasks of growing over 40 different vegetables and herbs on about 3 acres:

  • Greenhouse Management: seed starting and in-ground planting

  • Sowing and transplanting in the field

  • Making and application of Biodynamic preparations

  • Weeding, cultivation & pest management

  • Harvest & post-harvest handling of vegetables and herbs.

  • No till farming practices.

​The majority of our work is done by hand with some tractor cultivation. We manage the farm biodynamically with a strong emphasis on building healthy, biologically active soil.

​Work schedule: The workweek is generally Monday through Saturday. However, with a short season and unpredictable weather, flexibility to accommodate changes in the work schedule is required.

​Duration: Mid-April through October.

​Skills and Attitude: Interns must be honest, open, respectful, and be ready to work hard while maintaining a positive attitude. Applicants need to be in good physical health and able to work hard in various jobs and changing weather conditions. No electronic devices are to be used during work hours.

​If you are interested in working with the vegetables, please contact David Noriega at Blanknoriega@gmail.com with a short description of why you wish to do this and a brief resume.
