A total immersion experience. Springdale Farm offers a full-time, live-in internship position each year. Typically we ask for a commitment from April through November, with a workweek of approximately 40 hours. Interns have the opportunity to learn hands-on how a 35-acre farm operates in an organic and sustainable way. You will be involved in all aspects of the farm. Compensation includes room, board and a monthly stipend. E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (920-892-4856) for more information.
For those seeking a more in-depth and complete training in running an organic vegetable farm, we also offer an (approximate) 18-month apprenticeship, officially administered by the state of Wisconsin, which encompasses both classroom instruction, and on-the-job training and experience at Springdale Farm over two growing seasons. Successful applicants are paid for both their hours at the farm, and the 144 hours of classroom instruction included in the program. For more details on this apprenticeship, head to Wisconsin’s newly-launched Organic Vegetable Farm Manager Apprenticeship, and let us know of your interest in this possibility.
Full/Part Time Hourly Work:
Apply any time of the year for a chance to join our farm. While we are busiest from May through October, there is some work available year round. Tasks in the growing season can include transplanting, weeding, harvesting, and field preparation. Other jobs vary by year, from greenhouse construction and maintenance, to early season seedling care, to work on building our compost piles. Pay varies by experience and ability.
