Internship

Our Internship program at Cavaleiro Farm offers students and recent graduates practical, hands-on experience to learn what it takes to build and run an ecological farm.

As an intern, your classroom is a 65-acre farm just outside Toronto. The benefits are countless—project support, access to a community of members and local food businesses, not to mention accommodations, food, and a monthly stipend.

Our Internship program is affiliated with CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) in South West Ontario.
