Hawthorne Valley Farm, a diversified, Demeter certified Biodynamic farm, is looking for first and second year farm apprentices for the 2011 season. Our first year 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. The second year apprenticeships, open to anyone with at least one full growing season on a working farm, specialize in either vegetable production or dairy herd management. 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!
