Bringing Home the Farm: Public Education Workshops
This series of farm to table educational workshops provides hands-on training with local culinary professionals to help you make the most of the local harvest.
In 2011 we introduced a farmer apprenticeship program. This year we have an apprentice working at the farm from the begining of April through the end of October. Apprentices participate in all aspects of farm operations. The apprenticeship is designed for individuals who think that they might want to pursue a career in farming and would like to gain hands-on, professional training and work experience. The application process for the 2013 season has closed. Check back in the fall when we will begin the hiring process for the 2014 season.
The farm regularly hosts school, camp, corporate, and community groups interested in learning about food and farming. Visitors are welcome to tour the farm, learn about farm history, and participate in farm activities.
