We are offering Teamster Training in 2017! Special discounts are available to your interns, apprentices, and employees next spring. With the help of Essex Farm Institute, NOFA-NY, and the Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming, Donn’s Teamster School can offer a limited number of $200 discounts for four- and eight-day training sessions in Marathon, NY.
Our goal is to simultaneously offer a benefit to existing horse powered farms, and the beginning farmers that are applying to work as interns, apprentices, and employees on those farms. They receive the discount and you get a new member of your team that has had some basic teamster training. This would include interns and employees of Horse loggers as well.
Please consider encouraging or assisting your new workers to take advantage of this training. You can also reach out to me with questions or suggestions about how to make this program best serve your needs. I am trying to reach out to all animal powered farms in New England and Pennsylvania – please let me know of any other animal powered farms that I might not be in touch with.
