Information for Prospective Apprentices

Seeking a farm job in Maine for the summer? MOFGA's Apprenticeship Program is targeted for young adults, with or without previous farming experience – but all are welcome to apply. Apprenticeships may begin any time during the year, and last for any duration. Most farmers are looking for apprentices for the entire growing season. The usual apprenticeship involves labor in return for room and board, instruction and experience. Many farmers pay a modest stipend in addition.
