Summer Internship

Location: Pellston , MI
Deadline: May 31, 2017

Open Sky Farm

Pellston, MI

Summer Employment/ Internship May-August ( dates negotiable)

About Us: We are a SMALL certified organic farm, growing a wide variety of vegetables, herbs and cut flowers. We have two locations: Petoskey and Pellston. We are transitioning to our Pellston location, so you’ll be getting in on the ground level. We still have infrastructure that needs to be put in place at our new location. We have a 25 person CSA, sell to local stores and restaurants and participate in 1-2 farmer’s markets.

Job Description: We envision a 25-40 work week for you, primarily Monday-Friday, but may include some Saturdays. Days start EARLY! Please be prepared for working in all kinds of inclement weather: heat, cold, rain, etc. Make sure you dress appropriately. Duties may include: weeding, seed starting and transplanting, irrigation, fertilizing, harvesting, wash/pack duties, CSA distribution and helping at farmer’s markets. Many farm tasks will require lifting and physical strength. We are looking for someone who is reliable and hardworking and hope this arrangement is mutually beneficial.

Compensation: We pay $10/ hour. There are two possible housing arrangements: a room at our house in Petoskey or a trailer/yome at our farm in Pellston. These details are still being worked out, but ideally we can provide housing as well as an hourly wage. We can negotiate the specifics.
