Looking to Learn Through Apprenticeship with ABQ Farmer
Reference #: 171
Type of opportunity sought: I am looking for an internship or mentorship position with an existing farmer. I also currently do not have farmland, but I am looking for land to farm.
Specified interest in farming/ranching/animal-raising: I am interested in farming full-time.
Interested in growing/raising: Vegetables, fruit, herbs, poultry/fowl, cattle (beef), and cattle (dairy).
Interested in these farming/ranching practices: I am interested in learning more about what defines all of them.
Background in farming: I have some agriculture-related experience.

Other Information: I am seeking an apprenticeship with a local farm. I aspire to have a farm with my husband in the near future. I would like to live at home and commute to a potential mentor. My future farm will heavily emphasize growing peppers, although we would also like to implement diversity with more permaculture attributes. I am a very hard worker from the Midwest, where I spent lots of time on farms with family. I have also worked at a local wholesale greenhouse here in New Mexico. My degrees vary from pre-med to anthropology, but I did take courses in agriculture as well. I am useful with modern technology like computers and the internet. I am willing to learn new things and love the outdoors.
