Vegetable Apprentice

Vegetable Apprenticeship
Glynwood seeks three apprentices for the 2024 season to be part of our Advanced Vegetable Apprenticeship Program. The Apprenticeship Program is designed for beginning farmers who plan to pursue a career in vegetable production. While working as crew on our 6 acre vegetable operation, apprentices will go beyond the basics of vegetable production and learn the skills they will need for a managerial position on a vegetable farm.

Educational Opportunities
We believe the most effective method of teaching farming is through experiential learning out in the field. We supplement our apprentice in-field learning with other educational opportunities including:
Participating in 60 hrs of classroom-based learning presented by experts outside of the Glynwood farm team
Sessions lasting 1-3 hrs on 20 different key farming topics and systems delivered by Glynwood farm managers
Weekly field walks and rotating managerial responsibilities
Visiting many other regional farms as part of Mid-Hudson CRAFT
Access to a robust alumni network and other organizational contacts for long-term technical and general networking assistance

The vegetable apprentice positions are 9 months, from mid-March to mid-December. Apprentice compensation is as follows:
$15 per hour wage
Private room in a 6-bedroom house shared with the other apprentices
Educational programing averaging 5 hrs/week
Paid time off
$500 in a Healthcare Reimbursement Account
$200 workwear stipend, and $250 conference stipend
Free Glynwood eggs and vegetables and a 40% discount on Glynwood meat and Farm Store products
