Work with us
There are several ways to get involved with the farm, and we are always looking for people who are just as passionate and excited about producing local, sustainable food as we are.
Each season, we offer several apprenticeships to people who are seriously considering a career in sustainable farming. We are committed to apprentice training, and seek talented young farmers who are excited to learn how to run an organic farm. Apprentices receive a stipend and live on the farm in a restored carriage house with a professional gourmet kitchen, access to hiking trails, and a swimming pond.
As an apprentice, you will gain valuable experience in all aspects of the farm's operations, including weekly learning sessions with the entire farm team.
Farming is physically demanding and requires daily problem solving in the field. We look for people who:
Enjoy spending days outside
Are detail-oriented and observant
Enjoy working on a team, are a "people person"
Take ownership of projects
Appreciate good food, especially cooking and preserving it
Are willing to work hard, in all weather and on some Saturdays at the Phoenixville Farmers' Market
Have an interest in sustainable agriculture
If you would like to join our team, please send a resume and cover letter to Liz Andersen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Whether you are interested in exploring farming as a possible career, or you would like to get your hands dirty and make a difference on the farm, we would love for you to join us. Expect hard work, fresh air and a taste of what's in season.
