The Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers in California, New Mexico, Colorado and Montana to offer paid, full-immersion apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. NAP mentors are dedicated stewards of the land; they practice regenerative methods of food or fiber production, provide excellent animal care, and are skilled and enthusiastic teachers.

These apprenticeships are full-time, intensive education & professional training opportunities, 50-60 hours a week, varying with the demands of season, weather, plant and animal needs. The New Agrarian Program seeks applicants committed to lives in regenerative agriculture, enough experience to know what it takes to work on the land, and an excellent work ethic. Applicants must be motivated self-starters, have the ability to work independently, be prepared to work long days outside in variable conditions; be solid problem solvers; and embrace diversity and teamwork. The selected applicants will be mature individuals, excited to engage in their own learning process.

Compensation includes a monthly stipend, housing, partial board, supplemental education for beginning farmers and ranchers, and registration, travel and lodging for the Quivira Coalition conference and our apprentice orientation.
