Interns / Volunteers
While we understand that it is a common practice to do so among most small scale farms, Neversink does not trade food, education or housing for labor. All employees are covered by workers comp, insured, and paid a reasonable hourly wage.
There is a long history of Agriculture taking advantage of labor. Neversink does not wish to continue that trend and as a result does not take on interns, volunteers, or woofers.
Conor, however, greatly desires to educate beginning farmer's and thus chooses to separate education from the business of farming through free YouTube videos, on-site workshops, online education and his “beginning farmer project.” We hope some of those resources can be of value to you.
