Farm & Educational Opportunities

 

We have the following opportunities available at Nature's Roots Farm.  If you are interested please send us an email at [email protected] to request additional information. 

Semester Abroad on the Farm 

We offer a 6 month Semester Abroad on the Farm.  This is considered an abroad program as it is a complete lifestyle change outside of every day living in our current society.  Be ready to get your hands dirty, your mind clear and your heart full. 

You will learn how to effectively manage the following:

  • 100% Grass-Fed Cows (Beef & Dairy) 
  • Pasture Raised Chickens
  • Forest-Fed Pigs
  • Chemical Free Pastures 
  • Forestry & Woodworking 
  • Gardens & Orchards 
  • Permaculture Practices (symbiotic nature between animals and plants)

As part of this program, you will also learn how to start a farm including business setup, sales, marketing, building a customer base and more. There will be weekly study/discussion groups and a large learning library that you can use during your stay.  Tuition will include housing and food (everything we grow / sell on the farm). This program will allow you to experience a full "season" on the farm. At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to partner with us to begin your own enterprise on or in connection with the farm. 

Cost: $2,000 (due @ start of program)

Semester Dates: Mar 15-Oct 15

Application Process: Request and return an application.  Once received, we will evaluate and if selected there will be a video interview.  The next step would be a 2-3 day in person trial period on the farm. 


Farm Tours

Nature's Roots Farm has an open door policy and welcomes all of our wonderful patrons to visit the farm and deepen their relationship with where their food really comes from. Please call us or email us to setup a day/time to come for a tour (Saturdays are our preferred day).


Referral Program

Refer a friend and get $10 off your next order. We will give a $10 product credit per referral once that person has placed their first order. We depend on current patrons to bring others on board and appreciate all referrals.  Just have your referral add your name to the comments section when they are placing their first order.


Vendor Partnerships

Are you a farmer/vendor in this area that creates a healthy, nutrient-dense and/or natural product that you think our customers would be interested in? If so, contact us with more details (i.e. products, pricing) and we can discuss things further.
