The Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) in Goldsboro, North Carolina is offering four apprenticeships to learn the basics of running a small farm.
Apprentices will come to the CEFS Small Farm Unit (SFU) in Goldsboro and work with the farm manager, extension personnel and university researchers on a daily basis. Apprentices will participate fully in the production and marketing activities of the SFU as learners and partners, and may observe and participate in education and research / demonstration activities as occasions permit. Apprentices are expected to develop the expertise to take charge of specific enterprises or aspects of the small farm unit.
