Earth Haven Farm - Incubatorship Program
This is an internship program-partnership that allows you self-direct your internship. It is an opportunity to work on our farm while you pilot your own farm business ideas.
This is a unique full-time internship position designed to bridge the gap between being a farm intern working solely for the benefit of the farm, to a working partnership that allows you to put your own ideas into practice and earn income from those ideas in a low-risk environment, where the land and infrastructure is provided for you.
Yes, You Can Farm
in the words of Joel Salatin........
Would you like to run your own farmers market table and develop your own clients?
Would you like to run a CSA or RSA program?
Would you like to work in our commercial kitchen producing food products such as preserves and fermented foods like sauerkraut or kimchi, etc.
Perhaps you are interested in focusing on permaculture, bees, mushrooms, wild foraging, processing foods, livestock management, or making crafts while interning.
Perhaps you would like to teach and offer workshops through the Earth Haven Learning Centre and share your own knowledge with others.
All things are possible, and Earth Haven Farm is here to help you find your way.
Within this more senior internship program you will take an active part in the production process from selecting seeds, selecting and building plots, setting up irrigation, finding solutions for livestock management, climate change issues, harvesting, food processing and so much more.
This is a non-smoking farm. You must be legal to live and work in Canada. Have a valid Health Card. Candidates for this position should have a minimum of 1-2 years experience on another farm or reasonable equivalent. A valid drivers license and construction skills are definite assets. Interview in person at our farm or by Skype is required.
You will be required to work 40 hours a week, however, weather permitting and circumstances around things that need to get done, this may be less some weeks and more others. That is the nature of farming. Picking days are Fridays and market days are Saturdays.
If it is something that we feel would work well with our current farming practices then we have an opportunity for a working relationship. We are open to hearing what your goals and ideas are. We would like to see your proposal in writing, then have a formal face to face (or Skype) meeting to determine if there is potential for a working relationship. A signed contract agreement will be required.
