Chick-a-biddy is entering our 18th season of production and has 14 years experience with hosting interns. We are looking for 1 or 2 people with enthusiasm about food and farming, stamina and an abundance of positive attitude.

The 5 acres of mixed vegetable production and the 4 greenhouses — along with the a flock of laying hens — offer a broad scope of education.
