It is strongly encouraged that apprentices leave their pets at home.
In the event that isn?t possible, pets are welcome in the apprentice
house and on the farm with the following guidelines (really, we love
dogs, but it?s a public place!) In the house, all pets must be confined
to your personal room (unless your housemates say otherwise), you must
be responsible for cleaning up after them inside and in the yard, and
you must be responsible for their relationship to your housemates (i.e.
they need to be friendly!).
On the farm, all dogs must be on leashes during all farm shop hours.
During other hours, they must be within your sight at all times and you
must clean up after them. You are responsible to make sure they do not
destroy crops or buildings. And you must be responsible for their
appropriate interaction with the public (i.e. they can?t bark at or bite
people who come out to the farm!).
As Brookfield Farm is a public place and we depend on our
shareholders (and prospective shareholders) for our livelihood, all
apprentices (all employees) must be professional, polite, and helpful to
all people who come to the farm.
It is expected that all apprentices will be prompt, dressed appropriately for work, and professional in their attitude at work.
The farm provides harvest knives and daily hand tools. Apprentices
must provide any other desired tools or clothes (pocket knives, rain
boots, rain gear, hats, gloves). All apprentices must carry a watch at
all times. It is suggested to carry a small notepad, a pen, and a knife
