Abundant Acres Farm is hiring four interns for the 2015 season. The main focus on the farm is growing vegetables for a 200 family CSA program plus selling at the Seaport Market in Halifax and several wholesale accounts. We also rotationally graze about ten cattle and care for 200 laying hens, tend young fruit trees and table grapes, cut firewood and engage in other homestead arts throughout the season.
The internship positions begin in early April and continue until the end of November, 2015. We provide room and board, workman’s comp insurance, a week of vacation in mid-summer, a salary of $400 a month, plus 10% of the farm’s profits. The farm’s budget, earnings, and expenses will be shared with the interns throughout the season.
