Farmer in Training at Incubator Farm Cane Creek Farm

  • Date Posted January 23, 2018
  • Location Cumming, GA
  • Category Agriculture
  • Job Type Educational program
Company Description
Cane Creek Farm is a small, family owned and run CSA farm located in the rapidly developing area of Forsyth County, GA. Surrounded by subdivisions, the farm fields nestle in a valley  and are bounded by a creek. In operation since 2001, the farm is run using organic practices to grow nourishing  food for the community.

Education has always been an important part of the farm with programs for volunteers, CSA workers, children, interns and farmers in training through the newly established Incubator Program.
Job Description The Incubator Farm is for farmers who are at the beginning of their career, have some experience under their belt, and are ready to move up to the next level in establishing their farm business. The Incubator farm will provide land, infrastructure, training and mentoring for three years to help get a farm business up and going. The starting point is participation in the Organic Growing Course taught in the winter/spring. The course starts Feb. 24 and will run every other Saturday for 6 sessions. 

The ideal candidate would have at least two seasons experience working on a production farm and should have a vision for their farm business. A business plan is not necessary to start, but will be developed during the first year of the incubator experience. Farmers in training must be able to work their land at least 20 hours a week during the growing season and participate in training and mentoring sessions. Modest use fees are charged. How to apply
