Waterpenny Farm internships run from April through November. The starting pay for interns is $2,000/month plus housing, at our beautiful farm near Shenandoah Park. We are in walking distance to Main Street Sperryville and its network of trails, studios, breweries, and more. Interns work 5 days/week and participate in all aspects of the farm, from greenhouse to fieldwork, harvest, and marketing. Successful applicants are available the full season and come with some outdoor work experience, good senses of humor, and a willingness to work and live in community with others.
We are a pesticide-free vegetable farm, starting our 25th growing season. We use Ecologically-based regenerative and organic growing practices, on 8 acres. We sell direct to our customers at the Takoma Park, MD and Arlington Courthouse Farmer’s markets, and also have a CSA and small on-farm produce stand on the farm. We work with our local Food Pantry to provide our produce to low-income neighbors. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for detailed internship information and an application. Check out our website, www.waterpennyfarm.com to learn about our family farm.
