Our 5 acre perennial
farm in Papillion, NE has some onsite openings!
We have had a bounty of food and relationships this year at New Earth Farm & Goods. Not only have we had the opportunity to grow our farm, we have had the pleasure of hosting three Keipos interns over the summer. However, as the internship ends August 15, we will have vacant spots to fill on the farm.
If you are interested in living and working on a 5-acre poly-cultured farm we might have the perfect spot for you. We are not looking for just an ordinary farmhand. We are looking for a few people
or a couple who want to help our farm to be successful and thrive. We want our farm to become your farm.

-Preserving, canning, fermenting, making medicines
-Building, fixing, carrying heavy things, using sharp tools, digging holes
-Moving fences, chasing animals, collecting eggs, cleaning poop
-Interacting with our farm family and local community

What does it require?
-The ability to work long hours during the growing season.
-The ability to perform physically straining work.
-The ability to work in community and alone.
-The ability to commit for at least one full year (if you want to live in the camper*). This is perfect for a couple.
-Or the ability to commit for 6 months for the detached loft (the nest**).
What will you receive?

you can eat. Also, if you are a meat eater, all of our meat is grown on-farm.

, toilet, and kitchen*. The second is a detached loft with electricity, which we call the nest**.
-A place to learn. We have a great library full of amazing books
on food, farming and many other subjects.
-Opportunities. Create your own micro-enterprise businesses on the farm and with our customers. As our customer base grows as we grow, you can develop ways to help meet others’ needs and make a little dough.
-Friendship. Living with others is rewarding and difficult, but connections with others are always made in places of hospitality, food, farming, and learning.
