Temple-Wilton Community Farm Cooperative hiring Dairy/Livestock and Vegetable Apprentices

Wilton, New Hampshire

Biodynamic dairy/livestock/pasture apprenticeships &  Biodynamic vegetable apprenticeships  (Wilton, NH)

The Temple-Wilton Community Farm Cooperative in Wilton, NH is looking for several  dairy/livestock and vegetable apprentices for April-October. This is a unique opportunity to learn by doing on the oldest continuously operating CSA farm in the country.

The Temple-Wilton Community Farm Cooperative is a diversified 200 plus acre biodynamic farm in the hills of southern New Hampshire. We operate a year-round raw milk dairy and farmstead cheese production facility. We also grow 45 different types of vegetables and herbs on six acres, as well as raise pastured pigs, meat chickens, egg layers, and Katahdin sheep in an intensively managed, rotational grazing system.  Our farm is part of a strong, diverse community that includes two neighboring Waldorf schools and the Hilltop Cafe, which is located here at the farm and serves as a lively community gathering place for all.

Apprentices are provided with shared housing on the farm, full board (food from the farm that can be cooked communally in the apprentice kitchen), and a stipend of $500 a month, including workman’s compensation coverage. The apprentice will work 6 days a week, and will ideally stay on the farm from April 1st (or mid-April) through the end of October, though these dates and the total length of stay are open to discussion.

Requirements:

We are looking for apprentices who pay close attention to details, are precise, efficient and above passionate about learning about farming.  More generally, our ideal candidate is communicative, hard-working, flexible, and patient.  Farming work is not easy, but is rewarding beyond measure and genuinely real in terms of its outcomes and effects!

Tell us a little bit about who you are, which apprenticeship you are primarily interested in, as well as why you are interested that apprenticeship and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
