If you have an interest in sustainable agriculture and would like
to volunteer, intern or apprentice email us at email@example.com.
We offer farming apprenticeships to those who know they want to
create their own farming enterprise. As an apprentice you will be
involved with all of the farm work at Flying Plow Farm and will
be asked to take some responsibilities on for yourself. When the
farmers are working, you are working. This means you are expected
to be available everyday, all day, just as you would be on your
own farm. You will also be involved in some of the planning and
decision making of the farm, allowing you to learn about the "behind
the scenes" aspect of running a farm.
You must be a hard working, efficient and observant individual. We seek people who take direction well, but who also anticipate what needs to be done and do it. These are the most important traits of a good farmer.
You will learn a lot just by working and observing. This is how Sarah and Tom started their farming career and we feel it is the best way to learn.
We offer farming internships for those who wish to explore farming as a lifestyle or for those who want a summer farming experience. As an intern you will work a set number of hours a week and your work will mainly include sowing, transplanting, weeding and harvesting.
As with our apprentices, we seek hardworking, efficient and observant individuals who are not afraid to take initiative.
Being a farming intern is great way to experience the labor aspect of a farm and help you decide if being a farmer suits you.
We welcome anyone who wishes to volunteer out at our farm. Volunteering
a great way to see what farming is all about without the commitment
of an internship.
