Our work…

We offer 2-3 apprenticeship positions from mid-April to mid-October. Please apply by January 1, as we review applications from January 1 to March 1, interview applicants during the month of March, and hope to hire and have interns start between April 1 and April 15th. Apprentices are involved in day-to-day management, including but not limited to planting, weeding, harvesting, moving animals, watering, some carpentry, plumbing and irrigation, etc. Apprentices are welcome participate in food donation runs and workshop events as well. Our year-round workshop schedule gives apprentices exposure to many well-known regional and national experts in agriculture, as well as many friendly attendees, both local and non-local.

 

Compensation offered…

We provide a week $100 stipend, housing, and food from the farm. We prefer people who are interested in community, as interns share housing. We are members of the WNC CRAFT network.

 

Our location…

There is plenty of opportunity for outdoor activity in Mills River, with state forest nearby and campgrounds, as well as river frontage that we own. Also, Sierra Nevada brewing and Bold Rock Cider are nearby. Hendersonville and Asheville are equidistant from the farm and provide plenty of culture and good food. We are also members of CRAFT, and so apprentices have access to a network of other farmers and farmworkers. Most of our farm staff lives on property.

We require people have working cell phones that they are not opposed to using. We require you to have a valid drivers license. We need strong people who are willing to work hard.

To inquire about employment opportunities, please check out our internship page and/or contact us by email.

About working at Living Web...

“I had a very good experience at Living Web. Pat Battle and Meredith Leigh are both renowned in the area and beyond for their writings and experience. They both are only in the field occasionally, but are available for advice and conversation often. Jeremy and Rocco were our two main supervisors. Both have a lot of experience and information to share. We mostly spent time in the fields and greenhouses, but did spend a some time helping move the sheep. We ate very well, and were able to can and freeze veggies for the winter. The work schedule is more relaxed than on a typical market farm, but still is more or less full time. We could attend any of the weekend/evening workshops that we wanted. I had time to work on personal projects involving medicinal herbs and working with the children in the onsite school. This mostly happened on my own time.”

We offer tours with 48 hours notice, and we have year-round workshop offerings which allow members of the public to visit the farm. Find out about our current offerings on our website’s workshop page.
