Balmville, New York
Farm Apprentice Positions, 2017
We have an opportunity for aspiring farmers with some experience to help run our expanding CSA and organic cut flower operation at Stonegate Farm.
Stonegate is an 1850s Carpenter Gothic estate farm in New York’s Hudson River Valley, one hour North of New York City. We run a CSA and market farm that includes heirloom vegetables, historic orchard fruit, cut flowers, eggs and honey. The farm is creating a farm supper and event program to run concurrently with the CSA, as well as evolving as an wedding venue. The farm is small, sustainable, bio-intensive and integrated into a non-farm district; a model of local, small-scale community farming that is central to the farm’s philosophy.
We’re looking for motivated individuals with passion and ambition, interested in learning how to run and manage a seasonal organic farm operation.
Independent on-farm housing, board and stipend commensurate with experience.
Position begins in April 2017, interviews at the farm or via Skype from Mid-March on.
