Apple Acres Farm is seeking a full season Apprentice who will work primarily at the farm, but will also have ample opportunity to work at other conventional and organic vegetable and flower farms in the area.

Apple Acres Farm is located in a beautiful, rural area with a strong community in the western mountains of Maine.

Cool Job of the Week Apple Acres Farm is seeking a half-term Apprentice to begin work around Labor Day through November. Most of the work will entail picking, grading, boxing and shipping apples, working in the farm store, assisting in farm tours, and learning about farm business management. Work in the farm store entails making products such as applesauce or apple chips, stocking shelves, making apple cider doughnuts and working in the farm cafe serving ice cream and sandwiches, as well as cleaning. Most of the experience here will not be in learning farm skills, although that will be part of it. It will be more about being inside the nucleus of a farm, learning what it takes to farm, and how fun and tough it can be! To apply, send a short email to Molly Griffin McKenna describing yourself, your upbringing and influences, and any relevant experience or reasons why you are interested in farming.
