Farmhouse Garden

Two intern positions available, one starting mid-April and one June, running until Sept. and/or November. Our farm has been certified organic since 1994 and Biodynamic since 2005. It is a truly mixed 100 acre farm and we rent another 100. There is a weekly CSA pickup and we go to a very vibrant, year round Farmers Market at the Toronto Waldorf School. We grow 70 varieties of vegetables on ten acres, grow hay, grains, corn, beans and pasture a herd of beef cattle on the rest. We do most of our farming with vintage “Farmall” tractors and I am trying to incorporate a team of Belgian horses into the system. Apprentices will assist us in all tasks and learn a little of everything, from equipment maintenance and operation, to mixing our own feed rations, greenhouse operation and plant propagation, animal care, fence building, construction, draft horse team driving, and for those that stay late in the year, we can provide an insight into forest management. We will provide a stipend.
