Seeking Paid Long Term Apprentice

Successful 72 y.o. retiring farmer/rancher seeking paid apprentice. 100-acre rural forested/9 acres pastured land in S. Oregon Cascades at 2,800 ft. with pristine air and environment. Organic pastured beef main operation. Very established customer base. Pastures have a 10%+ organic matter content and over 30 fenced pastures that make Mob grazing (a’la Joel Salatin) quite sustainable and ecologically sound.

Seek mature, responsible, teachable person. There may be options for your  garden, poultry, rabbits, herbs, mushrooms, bees, forest products or other business, if you have one or have thought of having one. We have wide-ranging, comprehensive, ongoing projects in farming and construction, skills that will be warmly shared and taught on an ongoing basis as the jobs come up. You do not have to have prior experience in all of them. Basic Ag and/or Animal Husbandry experience is necessary but the desire and willingness to learn is the most important part one can bring to any project in life.

Some of the opportunities for broad based skills and learning are: ongoing construction projects, soil/pasture management, agronomy (soil testing, lab readings, soil chemistry/tilth, microbial balancing), large scale composting, animal husbandry, agriculture, irrigation, gardening, forest management, (selective thinning, logging dead/diseased trees), heavy equipment operation, vehicle mechanics and maintenance, oxy/acetylene gas welding, MIG arc welding, and so much more. (No hemp production.) We try to do it all here. Looking for a long-term potential partnership with the right person to possibly take over the operation. (Please, short-term interests need not apply ). Opportunity of a lifetime. Email
