MTSO Farm and Food Apprenticeships

Seminary Hill Farm apprentices get stipends, housing and farm-to-table experience.

Seminary Hill Farm at MTSO is offering apprenticeships in farm and food. Apprentices will work directly with experts in organic farming and farm-to-table culinary service on the scenic 80-acre campus of a graduate seminary near Columbus. They will report to the manager and assistant manager of farm and food.

Apprentices will help maintain day-to-day operations of both the campus farm and dining facility of MTSO. They will be supplied with living quarters, farmer food and a small stipend. Apprentices will sign a one-year contract from October 2014 through September 2015.

Responsibilities will include but are not limited to: weeding, watering, harvesting, planting, cooking, cleaning, dish washing, selling at weekly farmers’ markets and assisting with community-supported agriculture distribution.

Each apprentice can expect to work 45-55 hours per week, including weekends and evening dinner service.

Anyone interested is asked to email a resume and cover letter to Farm and Food Manager Tadd Petersen, tpetersen@mtso.edu. MTSO is an equal opportunity employer.
