Apprentice on a sustainable, biodynamic farm

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is an intentional community that includes a biodynamic farm situated in the rolling hills of Chester County, PA. We are now accepting applications for our 1-2 year Apprenticeship Program that integrates hands on practical training with a solid theoretical study of Biodynamic Agriculture. Apprentices can participate in the NABDAP program and receive certification from the Biodynamic Association upon completion of the program requirements. Apprentices receive free room and board in a village house plus a monthly stipend of $175 and free access to village vehicles. We are a 432-acre farming and craft community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. In addition to our grass fed dairy we have a 300 member vegetable CSA, orchard, apiary, woodlands, wood fired bakery, coffee shop, craft workshops and 17 life-sharing households.
