Next steps for interested farmers!

Are you interested in taking the next step to become a farmer-educator in the Wisconsin Organic Farm Manager Apprenticeship Program?

  1. Read the FairShare OVFM Employer Application Notes
  2. Download and complete the FairShare Employer Application and send to Claire Strader at
  3. Once entered into the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) system, if you have already informally solidified a relationship with an apprentice, you will be paired once the apprentice has submitted the apprentice application to the DWD system. If you do not have an apprentice in mind, FairShare will provide apprentice applications for you to review and select from.
  4. Once paired, the DWD will generate a contract and a representative from FairShare will meet with you to discuss the contract and gather signatures.
