...to the experience of a lifetime.
Our Apprentices participate in all aspects of life here on the farm. From the everyday tasks in the garden and with the animals, the packing shed and markets to unique experiences tailored to educational interests.
|Here we are at the Homestead of John Bunker during one of MOFGA's 'Farm Training Project' Days|
You will learn through hands on experience and discussions that take place during the every days tasks at the farm. We place a very high value on education, and do our best to teach things that 'have nothing to do with farming'. Want to learn how to fell and limb a tree with a chainsaw? Want to learn to change the oil in your car? We can teach you. And of course, there is all the farming knowledge to be had. Learn to plan, plant, weed and harvest efficiently, cultivate, drive tractors and switch implements, save seeds, etc. etc.
But it's not all work. Our apprentices spend the summer living where we live...by the lake! The apprentice cabin is less than 200 feet from water's edge.
And one of the best things in the world is firing up the sauna at the end of a hard day's work, relaxing in the steam and then jumping in the lake under the stars.
|Here is our wood fired sauna, just a short run to the lake and then a short walk back to the cabin for the best night's sleep ever.|
