Flying Plow Farm in Rising Sun, MD is now accepting applications for its Draft Horse Apprenticeship. The Apprenticeship uses study sessions along with full-immersion farming and marketing to give you the necessary skills to own and operate your own horse-powered farm. Compensation package includes stipend, housing, and farm products.
Flying Plow Farm is a 56 acre organic vegetable and livestock farm. Our main focus is growing 7 acres of organic vegetables using bio-extensive farming practices that include long-term cover cropping, compost making, timely tillage and cultivation techniques, conservative irrigation practices, and moisture management.
The farm produces year-round for its CSA, summer farmers markets, winter markets, and winter delivery programs. We also raise grassfed beef and pastured poultry & eggs, and keep draft-horses and work-hogs.
