The Pfeiffer Center and its farming collaboration with The Fellowship Community offer a three-month Summer Farm Internship and a nine-month Extended Farm Internship.
Successful completion of the Summer Farm Internship is a prerequisite for applying to the Extended Farm Internship. Together, the two internships offer a complete farming experience, from planning to planting to harvest, at a busy, diversified, community-based biodynamic farm.
Based upon the three pillars of education, care of the land, and agricultural production in service to the community, our farm has nine acres under cultivation, 39 acres of pasture and hay, the only dairy herd in Rockland County, NY, a team of draft horses, and an apiary, all centered in a community of people and institutions working from the insights of Rudolf Steiner.
Our produce and dairy products supply the Fellowship Community’s 150 members and co-workers, a 30-share CSA, and local outlets such as Threefold Café and the Hungry Hollow Co-op.
The Pfeiffer Center’s educational programs for adults include the One-Year Part-Time Training in Biodynamics and one-day workshops.
Along with milk and produce, our farm provides our community with a rich festival life and opportunities to be involved in the life and work of the farm. Our biodynamic land-care practices foster a farm individuality that can receive wisdom and guidance from the biodynamic preparations, trace substances and vital forces from the air and soil, cosmic influences, and the activity of the elemental beings.
