We offer you a stipend during your learning opportunity that starts at $400/month and goes up $50/month as you get the hang of farming. You will learn to do by doing & asking questions!
We are also part of the CRAFT Kawartha program which includes monthly educational visits to other farms.
We integrate horses into our cultivation practices. And have a modest amount of mechanization. You must be able to work alone & in a team environment. You must be able to tolerate children this is a family farm!!!
