Position: Farm Internship on mixed livestock grazing operation

Organization: Luna Field Farm
Location: Southwestern Manitoba (Dunrea)
Luna Field Farm is a pasture (grass)-based livestock farm operated by Wian Prinsloo and Lydia Carpenter. The farm is run on several hundred acres of pasture land in western Manitoba. Through an ecological lens we focus on the health of our soils. We employ management intensive grazing techniques in a multi-species grazing system with the objective of better land, great food and a healthier community. We feel that growing food, and/or procuring local foods is one way to foster responsible land stewardship and nurture resilient communities. We are employed full time by the farm. We raise chicken on pasture, have a flock of sheep, a herd of cattle and about 100 pigs on farm.
We are currently seeking one intern for the 2017 season (May-October) to work with us.
Compensation includes shared housing (with us), meals, including meat from the farm and a regular CSA vegetable share from a neighbouring farm, a stipend of $500 per month, and learning opportunities on farm!
