Round Right Farm hiring Apprentices

Terra Alta, West Virginia

ROUND RIGHT FARM hiring Apprentices for 2016

Apprenticeship opportunity in Terra Alta, WV

We started Round Right Farm ten years ago, and have watched it grow from a 1/4 acre to 6 1/2 acres of vegetables, from 20 CSA members to 275, and from just a dream to a true reality. We are proud of having an economically viable small farm, and believe in the importance of passing on the skills we have acquired to others who are interested in making a living through farming. There are many skills that can be learned in the classroom, but farming isn’t one of them. We completed a six month apprenticeship on a farm before we bought our own land, and we feel strongly that the only true way to learn farming is to live and breath it.

Whether you’re someone who feels at home in the classroom, or someone who has always learned best through alternative methods, we can meet your needs. We offer an intensive hands-on learning environment, while we also provide access to our farming library, offer bi-weekly lectures and visits to other area farms, and encourage philosophical conversations about life and food on a daily basis. Our apprenticeship is based on the idea that you are trading your labor for our knowledge; instead of leaving our farm with college loans, you will leave us with skills that you can immediately put into action. Break out of your comfort zone, come see if farming is just what you’ve been seeking.  Check out our full apprenticeship description at www.roundrightfarm.com/pages/jobs and then give us a call.  We can’t wait to talk to you.

This is an eight month apprenticeship with a stipend.

Applications are due by February 15, 2016.
