About us:

Sisters Hill Farm is a beautiful, 400+ member vegetable CSA located in the Hudson Valley. Now entering our 26th year, we are seeking 3 apprentices for the 2024 season. Apprentices will take part in all aspects of the farm, from seeding and transplanting, to tractor work, to harvest and customer relations.
