New Hampshire

01 - On our 96A farm, we grow vegetables for our 180-member CSA on 6A.  We have 400 pastured laying hens, and we process our own meat birds and operate a small goat dairy.  We make our own Chevre goat cheese for retail sale in our NH-certified dairy processing room.

 

Work here would include all aspects of vegetable production from greenhouse seedlings through customer pickup, moving electric net fencing and caring for chickens and goats as well as milking goats, and learning to make cheese and soap.

 

We’re looking for one or two people with valid driver’s licenses to start in May and work through August, although working through October is preferable.

 

Apprentices have available a camper, Porta Potty, outdoor shower and access to guest bath in the farmhouse.  Meals are on your own.  Anything produced on the farm is available free.  Couples both working here are welcome, and we are gay-friendly.

 

Apprentices would learn and work closely with the owner/farmer, learning as much as you can take in about vegetables, chickens goats, CSAs and farmers’ markets.  We are a small operation that would depend on you greatly, value your work and fun attitude.  We laugh a lot here.

 

 

02 - We are an organic vegetable, herb and flower farm operating on six acres of open field in the lakes region of New Hampshire.  We sell a wide variety of produce (over 100 kinds of vegetables) to restaurants, grocers, caterers, and through our CSA program.

 

Work on the farm consists of seeding, planting, cultivating, harvesting, and delivering vegetables from June through November.  Special projects this year include light forestry work, opening up new field space on the farm, season extension, beekeeping, and a new flower operation.

 

We would like our apprentices to begin mid-April/early May and end mid-October/November, 2012.

 

Room, board and a weekly stipend are available and will be worked out with the apprentices individually to suit their needs.

 

We offer all of our skills and knowledge in relation to running and building a small organic farm: topics include crop maintenance and management, harvesting and marketing produce, disease- and pest-management, soil health and farm building, seedling production and irrigation installation, to name a few.  We also offer access to other farms in our area that are working on greenhouse production, small fruits and berries as well as animal husbandry.  We live between the White Mountains and the lakes region of NH so off-farm activities include hiking, biking, swimming, waterskiing, kayaking and canoeing, and much more.  The farm is close to Wolfeboro where you can find coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and shopping.  There are a number of calendar events on the farm, which include preserving workshops, concerts, and picnics, and a neighborhood that focuses on sustainability and community projects.

 

 

03 - We are a year-round CSA providing over 100 households with vegetables, milk, yogurt, and eggs.  We have 5.5 acres of vegetables and have fourteen milk cows, as well as young stock and 120 chickens.

 

Work on the farm includes planting, harvesting and weeding, using biodynamic principles, as well as milking, moving cows to pasture, making yogurt and haying.

 

We need two apprentices in the gardens from mid-April through the end of October and one dairy apprentice any time from May through September.

 

We provide a room, farm produce, a $500/month stipend, and worker’s compensation.

 

We offer the opportunity to learn about biodynamic and locally supported agriculture and there are many recreational possibilities in the area, especially if you connect with some of our farm members.

 

 

04 - This is a community-supported agriculture farm raising grass-fed beef, chickens, pork, eggs and u-pick blueberries.

 

Work to be done includes gardening, harvesting vegetables, and berries, maintenance, minor construction and repair, fencing, animal husbandry, updating website, swimming, and smores production.

 

We’re looking for apprentices from May 2nd through August.

 

We offer practical hands-on experience planting, maintaining and harvesting a market garden, and animal husbandry, with mid-day swim breaks, weather permitting.
