Diversified Farm Apprenticeships
Position Description
East End Food Institute’s Apprentice Matching service offers the opportunity to apply to multiple farms and food businesses on Long Island through one application. We connect individuals who are interested in working in sustainable food businesses with those who want to share their expertise. Our partners range from bio-diverse organic farms to non-profit education centers, to sustainable seafood businesses and beyond. Each operation offers unique opportunities for hands-on training. Some provide housing and most offer access to fresh produce and meals.

East End Food Institute connects apprentices with additional educational opportunities through our East End chapter of the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT). We collaborate with farm members to organize a series of bi-weekly tours and workshops for these apprentices that run from April through October. Tours include a wide variety of farming models unique to the East End, such as vineyards, orchards, fish and shellfish hatcheries, livestock, and more. The CRAFT program also provides apprentices with an opportunity to network and socialize with members of the farming community, the local food movement, and like-minded individuals.

Our food industry apprenticeships offer the opportunity to gain experience in:

Mixed vegetable, herbs, and cut flower production.
Greenhouse production.
Commercial Fishing.
Pastured poultry and a variety of other certified organic livestock.
Marketing, farm management and other business skills.
Educating and interacting with community members at CSA pick-ups, farmers markets, and more.
Vocational training programs for differently abled adults and young adults.
Opportunities to network within the farm community and deepen your educational experience through the East End CRAFT program.
