Internships

Internship Program

Interested in getting your hands dirty and gaining farming experience? Consider an internship at Whole Circle Farm. All interns may take part in the CRAFT program, which offers visits to a wide variety of organic and biodynamic farms in Southwestern Ontario for in-depth tours. At these visits, interns from all participating farms will gather and have a chance to be introduced to different techniques from market gardeners, CSA growers, dairy farmers, and orchardists. There is also a wide array of relevant resources in the immediate area including an agricultural university (the University of Guelph), as well as many working farms.

Anyone with a serious interest in agriculture and the physical ability to work the long hours of a farming schedule will be considered. All interested applicants are encouraged to set up a time to visit and work on the farm. All hiring decisions will be made on a first come, first serve basis.

Supplemental Educational Resources

Many of our apprentices utilize other regional support programs for beginning farmers. These include:

  • CRAFT Ontario (The Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training in Ontario): an informal, member-driven organization made up of more than a dozen southern Ontario organic farms.
  • FarmStart provides specialized training, and encourages new farmers to engage in entrepreneurial strategies that creatively turn challenges into opportunities.
