Internship / Apprenticeship
Do you want to learn the business of farming? I have been farming for over 5 years, selling at one time at 4 local farmers markets per week and raising chickens, pigs, and vegetables for the public. For the last year and a half, I have been selling exclusively to chefs and bartenders at fine local establishments. In 2019, the focus for the farm is herbs, perennials, edible flowers, and some petite vegetables.
Learn how to grow crops, manage land, market and sell online, and manage business relationships with the Atlanta area. You will work alongside me and independently throughout the 6 months we are together. It is an incredibly fun vocation and something to be proud of.
