Training, Apprenticeships and Internships for Beginning Farmers
With programs for farmers, students and teachers, Stone Barns Educational Center is a hub of learning, creativity and experimentation. It's basically Hogwarts for Regenerative where the picture-perfect grounds are abuzz with entry level wizards all the way up to those getting their OWLS. If you're in NYC, do yourself a favor jump on the train to Tarrytown and soak in the magic. (open to the public Wednesday - Sunday).
Soil Centric's Pro Tip
Stone Barns offers a comprehensive apprenticeship to "grow farmers." Apprentices emphasize one of three specialized production systems: crops, rangeland or grazing while rotating through all elements of farm production. Guided by Farm Director Jack Algiere and his team the program runs from February to November. Hands-on training is supplemented with classes and workshops. Admission is highly competitive and finalists are required to travel to the farm for an interview. For US citizens or green card holders. Sign up under "for farmers" to be notified when applications open for the next season.
