Now that Runamuk finally has a #foreverfarm home, we can really dig in and begin the work of cultivating this pollinator conservation farm! Over the course of the next 5 years we will be establishing the infrastructure and systems that Runamuk needs to grow: market gardens, seedling production of annuals and perennials, continued expansion of our apiary, and the start of the pollinator demonstration gardens that will help us spread our bee-friendly message.

To make all of that happen we’re looking for a few good people to join our team as farm apprentices. Apprentices at Runamuk will be involved in all aspects of the Runamuk farm and apiary operations. This includes holding responsibilities with the livestock (chickens and sheep), market garden, apiary, and various other farm projects.

This is a profit-sharing model that supports people when they return in subsequent seasons. First-year apprentices are not paid, but 2nd and 3rd-year apprentices will receive a monthly stipend, as well as an end-of-season bonus. Room and board is provided by Runamuk for all apprentices, as well as access to wi-fi and household facilities.

After 3 or more seasons at Runamuk, a dedicated individual can learn literally every aspect of the business; including sales, accounting, planning, monitoring and all aspects of every farm enterprise.

To learn more about apprenticeship opportunities at Runamuk Acres:

Please read all of the information thoroughly before requesting an application. Deadline for application submission: January 31st.
