Still Looking for a Farm Apprenticeship?

The CRAFT Program, a Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training, is a structured program for seasoned apprentices run by the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT).

This year the Rutland Area Farm & Food Link is working with NOFA-VT on the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (C.R.A.F.T.) Program. A number of farms in and around Rutland County will be  hosting apprentices who will be receiving training through the CRAFT program this summer.

Participating in a farm apprenticeship through the CRAFT program will give you access to 4-5 workshops just for CRAFT apprentices and a great support network of aspiring and beginning farmers.

The CRAFT program is a great way to get your shoe in the door for the NOFA-VT Journey Farmer Program.

We will be matching up farms with apprentices soon. We’ll have some dairy farms, livestock farms and diversified veggie farms participating.

Please email me at if you are interested in participating!
