CSA & No-till FARMING

Position: Farm Apprentice
Farm: Front Porch Farm
Location: RR#1, Margaree Harbour, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
Housing: in the farm house or in a camper trailer

We are looking for two farm apprentices for the 2020 growing season.

Front Porch Farm is located on the southern side of the South West Margaree River Valley. We grow 2 acres of vegetables and perennial fruit on the fertile flood plain in a no till permanent raised bed system. We sell through our 40 member CSA, the Baddeck Farmers Market, local restaurants and grochery stores. We also pasture about 12 sheep and lambs using intensive rotational grazing techniques. Our flock of laying hens follow behind the sheep in the rotation. Our resident donkey watches over the flock as well as helps out with forestry projects in the fall and winter.

Apprentices here will get the oppertunity to work on all aspects of the farm with the majority of the work coming in the vegetable production. From seedling care in the green house, to trasnplanting, to weeding, tending, harvesting and selling at the markets. Daily chores will also include watering, caring and rotating the animals.

The Margaree is a great place to spend a growing season with beautiful sandy beaches, water falls, hiking trails,isolated swiming holes and celtic square dances. The farm is a bit of a community hub with frequent visitors, gatherings and house concerts. We host a small music festival at the end of the season with workshops on various aspects of farming and homesteading.

Accommodation will be in the farm house or in a camper trailer.
