We are seeking experienced farmers who plan to hire an employee in 2021 to participate in our Labor4Learning program.
"This was a fantastic program! I really love the learning outcomes aspect and the focus on that," says Anne Carey, a 2020 trainee at Red Fern Farm in Wapello, Iowa.
"The attention on the learning, as well as the labor, was really nice to see. It was definitely a nice blend of the two."
The program is intended to benefit both parties: aspiring farmers get a paid, on-farm job and additional training on how to run a farm business, and the experienced farmer gains an eager-to-learn employee.
