Savage Mountain Farm is seeking an intern for the 2021 growing season. We are a highly diversified farm in the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania. We operate a full-diet, free-choice CSA program, sell to several restaurants, and go to 4-5 farmers’ markets per week. We grow most every kind of vegetable suited to our climate, as well as several varieties of mushrooms, including shiitakes, oysters and namekos. We keep bees, and raise several animals, including chickens for eggs and meat, turkeys, cows, pigs, lambs and rabbits. We have a small but growing fruit orchard that we plan to expand this year – blueberries, apples, raspberries, peaches, plums, hardy kiwis and more. We grow ginger in high tunnels, and we also forage wild edibles and medicinals for our cooperative, grow woodland medicinals like goldenseal and ginseng, and do value-added goods like bread and granola. In addition, we grow our own feed for our animals using organic methods – we make our own hay and grow our feed corn and oats that we grind ourselves. Therefore, interns will have a unique opportunity to get a well-rounded farming education. Check out http://savagemountainfarm.com/internship-opportunities for a full description of the internship!
