Welcome Austin!

We would like to take a moment to Welcome Austin to Omache Farm.  Austin is our Intern for the remainder of the farming season and will become a familiar face at the markets and other events we attend during the season.  Not only will Austin have the pleasure of learning about weeding, transplanting, harvesting, fencing, feeding and the other basic menial work of vegetable farming, but also, he will have the chance to learn about record-keeping and keeping books, going to market, and all the little whys and hows of our farm from dreaming up an enterprise to planning it to implementing it to taking it to market.

Austin is majoring in the Organic Agriculture degree at WSU.  He hails from the Seattle Area and currently, the plan is to go back and start a small urban farm.  Austin has started with us at a great time for him because our starting a CSA is very fresh in our mind and he is really getting to see a CSA from the very beginning.

We are very excited to have Austin joining us and look forward to giving him the experiences necessary to help him feel confident in starting out on his own in the future.

If you have a chance, please stop and say hello, chat, and get to know Austin at the Markets this season!  As much as he can learn from us, our customers have a lot to offer to the Internship experience.

We look forward to a great season Austin!
