News flash – we have extended the application deadline for this opportunity to line up with the one recently posted. Both farming opportunities now have an application deadline of March 30, 2018.
As you may know, our farmers lease their plots at Haliburton Farm for fixed terms of 4 years, with an option to extend by another 4 years. The idea is that by the end of their term these farmers have acquired the confidence and farming & business skills to move on to run their organic farming businesses on their own land.
Sadly for us, but happily for the farmers, this is what’s happened, and so two more farm plots are about to come open, effective 2019. Here’s the first opportunity; the second will follow soon.
To apply, you’ll need to have either farming experience, farming education or a combination of farming education and experience. There is a potential opportunity to work with the current farmer over the transition year.

Deadline for submissions is February 28, 2018.
