**2016 Internship Application at bottom of this page**
We are one of the oldest and largest organic and biodynamic farms in Tennessee, and we can use extra hands every season. The farm is beautiful and productive, supporting a modest herd of cattle and a 100 member CSA out of Nashville and the surrounding area.
Internship work will include a lot of field work and whatever needs doing. Planting, hoeing, weeding, carrying heavy things, getting very dirty, setting up for events, harvesting, building, etc.
Whoever comes to work with us needs to be flexible enough to do whatever needs doing, which will include a lot of work and also fun.
The two hundred fifty acres of the farm hold beautiful woodlands and pasture, with the Long Hungry Creek winding its way through the land. We hold conferences about local food, alternative healing, music, massage, biodynamic agriculture, and love to be a place of community gathering. Our regular staff is just a small circle of friends who work together. We do not all live on the farm, and the intern may be housed at the farm or with friends.
We can offer all you can eat biodynamic food and various free places to sleep. If you have your own transportation, that would be great, but it’s also okay if you don’t. CSA deliveries begin in the last week of May, but we’d love to have an extra set of hands to get the season rolling in March. Our season lasts thirty weeks, usually well into December, but we won’t demand that anyone stay that long.
We do feel strongly that there be an understood trial period of two weeks in which we make sure everyone can work together before we agree to make longer term plans and farmers.
