Puddleduck Farm is located just outside of the village of Millbrook, 30 min west of Peterborough and 1 ½ hours east of Toronto. We are a 100 acre farm where we raise cattle and chickens for meat, keep laying hens and will be introducing pigs in the 2017 season.
We have a large market garden where we grow over 40 varieties of organically grown vegetables and herbs. In the spring, we run a 2200 tap sugarbush. We are looking to find 1-2 full-time interns to help us with day to day farm operations and other farm projects, 5 days a week. Duties will include and are not limited to, helping care for and manage livestock, market garden prep, planting and harvesting, preparing CSA shares and maple syrup boiling and bottling.
Other jobs may include helping with new building projects. We are looking for people who are prepared for hard work, but a great learning experience. We offer a great working environment, where you can learn and gain valuable farming experience. Trailer accommodation will be provided along with farm food and some staples and a $400 monthly stipend. Positons can start at the beginning of March if the applicants would like to participate in our maple syrup production or April, if not interested, and will run until the end of October.
