Paid Apprenticeship Opportunity with Plowshare Produce About the Opportunity: 2018 will be our tenth season of farming and our seventh year of welcoming a full-time employee during the growing season. We trust that this will be a season of learning for all of us and hope that these guidelines offer a place for us to start an ongoing partnership. You can expect to be involved in all of the following areas: greenhouse seeding and care, transplanting and direct seeding, mulching and weeding, irrigation, vegetable harvesting and washing. We are also willing to share our experiences in other aspects of farm management: finances, record keeping, marketing, organic and food safety certification, etc. About us: We are Bethany and Micah Spicher Schonberg, and we manage a three-acre, certified organic vegetable farm that markets through a 75-member Community Supported Agriculture program and to the Tuscarora Organic Growers cooperative. We also grow salad greens in hoophouses all winter long and offer a 30-member winter share of greens and storage vegetables. Our 25-week CSA season begins the fourth week of May and ends the second week of November. Plowshare Produce is located in McAlevy’s Fort, 16 miles south of State College and 16 miles north of Huntingdon on Route 26.
