Welcome to C.R.A.F.T.

Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training in the Hudson Valley / Berkshires / Pioneer Valley.

We are the original C.R.A.F.T. group initiated in 1994. C.R.A.F.T. is a cooperative effort of local organic and biodynamic farms organized to enhance educational opportunities for farm apprentices.

Apprentices on farms that participate in the CRAFT program experience a diversity of successful farm models and join a community of fellow apprentices and farmers. Prospective apprentices should apply for an apprenticeship directly with one of the participating farms. There are other regional CRAFT groups based on our model, contact info can be found on the Links page.
