Traditionally, farming knowledge was passed down from generation to generation. Today, many young people entering the field did not grow up on farms and are eager to learn directly from seasoned farmers. Stone Barns makes this possible for new farmers during every season of the year, offering paid, full-time apprenticeships to young people who are committed to working the land.

Farm apprentices are given real responsibilities and gain practical knowledge of everything it takes to run a farm. Stone Barns Center’s apprenticeship program provides an opportunity for individuals with a dedication to sustainable food production to gain in-depth farm experience and training. This program has been developed to offer a full-time, comprehensive view of our intensive operation.

We are no longer accepting apprenticeship applications for the 2016 season. To view the closed apprenticeship descriptions, click here.
