We strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and members of any communities underrepresented in organic farming to apply.

“New Farmers Full-Year Apprenticeship” Program is designed to train new sustainable farmers; to give participants a strong introduction to the life of farming, and to the complexities and challenges of diverse sustainable farm systems. Details and application process

“Seasonal Internship Program” provides an opportunity to experience an abbreviated version of the New Farmers Full-Year Apprentice Program for people who can’t commit a full year.  MITP Farm hosts Seasonal Interns for terms of various lengths during more active and warmer months.  Details and application process

“Short-Term/’WWOOF’er” and “Thru-Hiker” Programs welcome volunteers in the warmer months (April-November) and, as space allows, in the colder months (Nov.-April).  Short-term volunteers can work from one to six days per week, and have a more flexible schedule than interns.  In addition to providing assistance to Full-Year Apprentices and Seasonal  Interns, Short-term volunteers will be assigned shorter-term projects on a day-to-day basis.  They get an intense, quick immersion into farm life.
