Description:

FARM INTERNS M-F, (Limited hours weekends may be requested upon mutual agreement) 8am-3pm, April-Sept/Oct, Housing may be available, it would be a room in a shared house off farm. Stipend $600.00/month with room, $1,000.00/month without. Free vegetables, juice, kombucha, and other farm made products. We are a 22 acre organic practice farm located in Hopewell NJ that grows over 100 varieties of produce in an average season. The unique situation with our farm is that we also run a successful and popular beverage line including cold pressed juices and kombuchas. Our interns not only learn about farming and day to day farm operations, they also get to see a working value added product business model all in the same place. Additionally we run a produce section at a local specialty market, so point-of-sale operations for produce are also skills our interns are exposed to on a daily basis. Time off during the week will be given for farm days/tours to other local farms and business models as our community farms are very active in this way giving many opportunities to visit different types of farming operations. To give a sense of the farm we are equipped with the following infrastructure: Two movable unheated greenhouses. A large seedling greenhouse heated in part by a custom subterranean thermal heat exchange system. A fully climate controlled barn that includes a bathroom, furnished breakroom, office, wifi, and a fully operational commercial kitchen and wash/pack room with two walk in refrigerators. Our farm is family run and operated in two general divisions: Farm operations, and Beverage operations. There will be opportunities to experience both. Stipends are paid on a monthly basis either by check or direct deposit. If you are taking a college course please remember to get all the necessary paperwork and approval in order so that you receive your credit.
