We work hard... moving, feeding, and watering the animals, cleaning eggs, processing chickens, building and maintaining infrastructure, making deliveries, helping customers in the Farm Store, record keeping, meeting other farmers, and more. Interns come to Whiffletree ready to learn, and leave our farm equipped to start their own! Interns receive a stipend and bonus upon completion (details below).
Our typical workweek averages 50 hours a week, ranging from MON to SAT 6 am - 5:30 pm (with some evenings and weekends).
Applications are received on an ongoing basis. Please email us at email@example.com
Interns purchase and cook their own food, but we have communal breakfast 3 days a week. We offer 2 accommodations to interns:
Interns receive 45 minute breaks for breakfast and lunch, and 2 days off per week. So an intern is working 5 days/week with the equivalent of two full days off. Work that happens in the evening (most often loading chickens) is made up for with longer breaks in the afternoon. Interns get 4 vacation days during the 4 months. We ask that you give us 2 weeks or more notice for our planning purposes.
