quivira apprenticeship position

Posted: February 17 2012
James Ranch Artisan Cheese has partnered with the Quivira Coalition, a conservation non-profit in Santa Fe, NM, to offer agricultural apprenticeships through Quivira’s New Agrarian Program. They are now seeking the next apprentice for the James Ranch to start in April 2012.
This is a 7-month position with James Ranch Artisan Cheese, an organic, 100% grass-fed cow dairy and cheese making operation in Durango, Colorado. Hands-on experience with all aspects of cheese production, including low-stress animal handling, milking, cheese-making, biological monitoring, marketing, financial planning, Holistic Management, and land stewardship.
Enthusiasm and sincere commitment to sustainable agriculture and food production is more important than experience, though experience with large animals and dairy is a plus. Compensation is room/partial board + a stipend. Contact Virginie Pointeau at the Quivira Coalition to request an application:(505) 820-2544, Ext. 5#[email protected]. The application deadline is Friday, February 24, 2011.
