COONAMESSETT FARM INTERNSHIPS


An internship is offered for the spring, summer and fall of each year.  
 We are accepting applications for all seasons in the 2018 year. 

 

Interns working at our farm will gain experience at doing a number of jobs on the farm, including planting, harvesting, greenhouse plant care and maintenance, animal care, farm stand work.

The interns work will include some aspects of management in all of these areas (depending on the intern).  We usually have several special projects/events every year and will encourage the intern to lead in at least one of these projects/special events. 

We require the intern to work 40 hours/week.  Hours are on the farm are irregular and second jobs are discouraged.  The first 18 hours/week will be worked in exchange for lodging (we offer modern housing - one person per bedroom) in a nearby ecological housing cooperative or in a farm hand house off-property).   Additional hours above 18will be paid at minimum wage.   


We are not an organic farm, but rarely use non-organic approved products on our plants.  Our web site provides additional information about the farm.  We are looking for energetic,
hardworking interns who like people and want to work in a fun, but busy, environment. 

Please fill out the application and send it to the farm for the 2016 program, or call us to talk about our internship program (508-563-2560).  If you are interested in receiving university credit for your internship, we are willing to talk with your university to arrange the credit.
