One farm intern sought for 2022 season

Plum Forest Farm is seeking motivated individuals who are seriously interested in a future career in organic farming to join our farm team this year. The best applicant will have experience doing physical work, enjoy working with other people, feel excited about the local food movement, and thrive working outdoors no matter the weather.

This position will run from April 15 through October 28, 2022. The workday is four days per week, Tuesday through Friday, approximately 9am-5pm each day, with a lunch break. In addition, interns will be asked to cover a portion of farm animal chores and watering, including one weekend per month.

Housing on the farm is included, in a small, private cabin plus a shared kitchen. In addition, we offer a monthly stipend plus fresh food from the farm, primarily fruits and vegetables. Interns will receive one week of paid vacation during the season.

This year’s farm team includes the farm owners plus former interns who are now on staff. We offer our interns the opportunity for hands-on learning of everything required to run a small diverse farm such as ours. People who complete the internship successfully are the first considered for future farm employment.
