YA Apprenticeship - The Homestead

About the Farm// The Homestead is a certified organic farm situated between the arable prairie of the Peace Country and a wilderness that extends all the way to the Pacific Ocean. It was started by Lisa and Donovan Kitt, two young farmers passionate about growing their own food. They have grown their subsistence farm into a medium-sized established operation that specializes in producing and direct marketing eggs, vegetables, micro-greens, pork, bison, beef, and chickens. // Lisa and Donovan work closely with Jerry and apprentices will likely collaborate on projects with the whole Kitt family. Donovan and Lisa work six days a week and attend farmers markets on Friday evenings and Saturdays. There are no shortage of experiences to be had and they don’t necessarily follow a predictable schedule.// About the Apprenticeship// Apprentices will work alongside Donovan and Lisa and acquire skills in many aspects of running a diverse and certified organic farming enterprise, including cropping, market gardening, raising pigs, raising cattle, beekeeping, egg production, building, marketing, and farm maintenance.// As part of the apprenticeship, you will meet with other apprentices across Alberta who are part of the Young Agrarians Apprenticeship program. Field days, learning opportunities and potlucks will be planned with this group at each host’s farm. You will also be invited to attend the 2022 Organic Alberta Conference.
