Katchkie Farm, an organic farm located in Kinderhook, NY, was born in 2006
when Great Performances, the leading New York City catering and events
company, bought 60 never-before-farmed acres and started growing its own
organic vegetables and fruit on the land. At Katchkie Farm, our desire to
serve the freshest and most flavorful food takes root. Our produce is grown in
our 12-acre vegetable garden and 9,000 square-feet of greenhouses.

Passionate about sustainable food? We are looking for a New York City-based
intern for Katchkie Farm the second half of the 2016 growing season. The
internship will run August 10 through November 3. You will have the
opportunity to learn about all aspects of managing the consumer end of a
local, organic farm.

You will be supervised by the Sustainability Connector and will learn how to
market the farm through various forms of media, coordinate the weekly
Greenmarket, and work with our Community and Workplace CSA program. You will
be out of the office two days a week helping with deliveries, learning the
logistical adventures of running a large community and workplace CSA program.

Additionally, you will assist with a variety of educational projects that
include: customer service, sustainable sourcing, building relationships with
farmers and local vendors, conducting research and development of CSA
programs, seasonal recipe creation, and writing for the weekly CSA newsletter.
You may have the opportunity to visit and work on the farm over the course of
the internship.

You should be responsible, reliable, outgoing, organized, and passionate about
sustainable food. Schedule is about 20-25 hours per week (to include
Wednesdays and Thursdays), with the possibility to complete some hours during
the weekend, if needed. This position is available with an hourly wage.

This position is PAID: hourly, under $15/hr

Please submit a cover letter and resume.
