East End Food Institute’s Apprentice Matching service offers the opportunity to apply to multiple farms and food businesses on Long Island through one application. We connect individuals who are interested in working in sustainable food businesses with those who want to share their expertise. Our mentors include a wide variety of food businesses, including bakers, beverage makers, farmers, fisherman, and more. Each operation offers unique opportunities for hands-on training. Some provide housing and some offer access to additional benefits such as free food.
East End Food Institute connects apprentices with additional educational opportunities through our East End chapter of the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT). We collaborate with farm members to organize a series of bi-weekly tours and workshops for these apprentices that run from April through October. Tours include a wide variety of farming models unique to the East End, such as vineyards, orchards, fish and shellfish hatcheries, livestock, and more. The CRAFT program also provides apprentices with an opportunity to network and socialize with members of the farming community, the local food movement, and like-minded individuals.
If you are interested in apprenticing at one of our mentor sites, please fill out the application on our website. We will follow up in 1-2 weeks.
