Each year Turner Farm hires full-time seasonal (April – October) garden apprentices who are interested in pursuing a career in organic agriculture. They are involved in every aspect of vegetable production, from soil preparation to farmers market. This includes some mushroom production as well. Up to ten hours per month is spent working with our livestock, learning basic animal husbandry. Apprentices also have the opportunity to work with our draft horses in the vegetable fields. Other opportunities are available based on individual interest. We provide class and field instruction and regularly visit other farms to learn about different farming techniques.
Our next hiring period for seasonal apprentices is scheduled from November 2017-January 2018.
