MOFGA Apprenticeship Frequently Asked Questions
Applications will open for the 2022 apprenticeship program in December.
You may apply year-round for apprentice positions. If there is a farm you are especially interested in, we recommend that you apply as early as possible, most farms begin the hiring process in December or January. Many farms have limited positions available and fill quickly.
After submitting your application, it will be emailed to the farms you indicated on your application. You will be emailed an apprentice welcome packet, which contains the farm contact information.
Please read the packet’s contents carefully. It contains information that will help you prepare for next steps. You should begin the process of also contacting farmers to set up visits and interviews. Most farmers appreciate prospective apprentices who show initiative and follow-up.
This is largely dependent on the farm and is indicated explicitly in each profile. All farms are required to pay a stipend of some sort and many offer room and board.
