On farm internship

 

This season we are again offering a couple positions for working with us on the farm. Here at Lake Breeze Organics you have the opportunity to learn all aspects of running a successful small-scale certified organic farm. During our season you will acquire the skills necessary to manage and run your own organic CSA/market farm.

At Lake Breeze Organics we believe in growing nutrient dense produce that is only made possible by taking the time to nurture the soil. We use sustainable practices on our farm that include making high quality composts using raw materials collected on the farm and animal and plant rotations. Food with superior taste comes from soil that is alive. 

As an intern on the farm your duties will include planting, harvesting, weeding, CSA , market preparation, greenhouse maintenance, animal care, irrigation, and countless other farm related tasks. We work closely with our interns to provide the best educational experience possible. Comfortable living quarters, farm food and a generous weekly stipend will be provided.

 

If you are interested in working with us please send us a note!!

Rick Bayless: the celebrity chef who supports local farms

https://www.theguardian.com/personal-investments/ng-interactive/2017/feb/28/rick-bayless-chef-farms-local-organic-foundation 

 How can we support local farms?

Frequent farmers markets...“That’s the best support you can do,” says Rick. Consider this: food in the US tends to have traveled hundreds of miles from its point of origin to your plate. Think of all that packaging and the fossil fuels used in transport, plus the conventional agriculture methods used in production. Food at farmers markets tends to have traveled shorter distances and has been grown using environmentally friendly methods.

Participate in CSAs...In a CSA, farms allow consumers to buy shares in exchange for select produce every week. It gives the farms a consistent revenue stream, instead of having to depend on farmers markets. “It also forces you as the consumer to get to know ingredients that you might not buy at a farmers market,” says Rick. “So you get to have some new experiences, and it gives the farm the opportunity to count on you on a long-term basis.”
