NOTE: This is for a 6+ week opportunity (no short stays). We are booked until Sept 2015.

We are a new farm in NW Indiana about a 75 minute drive from Chicago and 20 minutes to Lake Michigan and the dunes. We’re practicing organic standards and will be certified natural this year and transitioning to organic certification in 2015. We sell over 70 varieties of produce and also eggs from our hens. We sell at local farmers markets and at our onsite farmstand.

We currently utilize 2 of our 13 acres for growing crops and expanding to 3-4 next year. We have one hoop house and looking to construct another. There are currently 80 hens that live on the farm. We also have 30 meat chickens on pasture.

This opportunity is a full time position in which you'll help out on the farm 7-8 hours per day and at the farmers market. We are very interested in sustainability and small projects will arise to help us reach more efficient sustainability.

I am looking for someone who wants to do videos for my farm, company and whatever else we come up with. I am trying to create a permaculture/edible landscape type of farm with a wide community of artists, farmers, writers and whomever else is attracted to come. I have goats, chickens, geese and a dog and cat . . . and two artists. We are working on a gallery/exhibit to invite people to which is one of the reasons I'm looking for a videographer.

Primarily, I'm just in the design and setup phase right now (I do these things as I go so there really aren't any plans I go by). I have planted a few things and will continue to add but I mainly just want to make things look really cool as well as functional and do some different things on my property.

I am also an active part of a food buying club and own an infrared sauna studio.

Somebody that wants to get creative and help out with whatever I'm moved by at the moment would be ideal. Someone who is independent and has other inter... more inside

Enjoy nature and fresh air at our farm. Interns get to work in our hoop-houses (4 of them), harvest produce, repair and install drip irrigation, transplant plants, make soil blocks, move chickens, build fences, go to farmers markets and more. They can explore 3 miles of wooded trails, experiment with new foods or chill out on the internet. They can meet other farmers that belong to our group of growers and learn more about what it takes to be certified organic. Interns can stay in travel trailers or they can camp on the farm. Food is provided and some evening meals are eaten together. Interns without transportation can be picked up at the airport, train or bus station, bikes are available so they can travel to nearby towns. There are small town events and activities which occur throughout the whole summer and we are close to Lake Huron.
