YA Apprenticeship - Grovenland Farm

ABOUT GROVENLAND FARM Grovenland is located near Lanigan, Saskatchewan on the edge of Treaty 4 & 6 // Three generations farm together at Grovenland Farm. In 2011, Lisa and Ben Martens Bartel moved from Winnipeg to the family farm to begin a new farming story with Ben’s parents, John and Denise Bartel. They all enjoy hosting people on the farm and creating a welcoming place. The people on the farm are LGTBQ2S+ affirming and welcoming. // Grovenland Farm produces grass-finished beef, pastured pork from heritage breed pigs, pastured chickens (both meat birds and egg layers) and a full complement of vegetables. // Their animal grazing rotation is based on Holistic Management practices and on pasture when possible. In the gardens , they make heavy use of mulches, animal waste and compost and follow organic practices. // Ben and Lisa sell vegetables seasonally at the Lanigan Farmers Market, the Manitou Flea Market and through Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) subscriptions from July to early October for customers in Lanigan, Watrous and Saskatoon. They also sell vegetables and meat through their website , a farmer co-op called The Farmers Table, and a couple of stores including Moose Jaw’s The Wandering Market.// About the apprenticeship: // The apprentice will work alongside Ben and Lisa and other seasonal staff. Garden work (planting, weeding, harvesting, packaging, etc) would be the main priority. Secondary work will include animal feeding chores and temporary fencing. The apprentice can be included in other marketing aspects of the farm. As part of the apprenticeship, you will meet with other apprentices across Saskatchewan 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.
