Follow Instructions: Listen carefully to any instructions given throughout the day, listen and watch during all demonstrations, and ask questions if clarification is needed.
Ebb & Flow: We must keep a certain pace to get everything done. We are more than happy to show you how we do things, but also ask that you try your best to keep up. Be conscious of whether a conversation is getting in the way of the job at hand. Ask for help if you are struggling with any given task.

Please keep all tools and farm equipment clean and return them to their proper locations.
Be open to new experiences and ways of doing things and most important have fun.
