Sierra Cascade Organic Blueberry Farm
(Forest Ranch,CA)We are looking for energetic interns to work on our farm and at farmer's markets during the 2013 harvest season (May-August). Contact us if you have an interest in working on an established certified organic farm, in a beautiful part of California surrounded by miles of forests. The season is short, the hours are long, the days are hot, but the nearby crystal clear creeks help wash the dust off, and housing can be provided. This is a paid position. We are a family-owned and operated farm. Sierra Cascade Farm is located in northern California, in the Lassen foothills east of Chico, near the convergence of the southern Cascade Range and the northern Sierra Nevada mountains, where we have been farming 9 acres of Certified Organic blueberries (11,000 plants) on our 61 acre property, since 1989. The farm has been Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO), since 1993. We recently re-certified with CCOF. With a combination of good soil, water, organic and sustainable growing practices, and careful selection of varieties that would grow in the local climate, the blueberries harvested from Sierra Cascade Farm have been consistently outstanding in quality and flavor. We grow organically for a number of reasons: healthy work and living environment, agricultural benefits, environmental benefits. In his 30 years of farming, John has always been concerned with the relationship between agricultural practices and the health of the environment.
