Apprentices at Healing Springs Farm are involved in all farm activities, including animal management, husbandry, fencing, pasture management, garden management, agri-tourism as well as cabin renovations and building projects. They work with us on the farm and at the cabins four to five days a week.
Apprentices are housed in a private room or cabin with a shared bathroom. We provide 3 full meals a day plus snacks, 7 days a week. Meals are prepared using meats and produce from the farm as much as possible.
We expect our apprentices to learn through working. We are happy to teach / share everything that we know and have learned about farming, construction, and agri-tourism. Our apprentice program is ideal for someone who wants to have their own farm in the future. If you are interested in our apprenticeship program, we ask that you be interested in farming, can work consistently on repetitive tasks, be in good physical and mental shape, enjoy physical labor and have a positive attitude. We encourage you to schedule a farm visit if you are interested in the program. Just drop us a note or give us a call to schedule a visit!
