From New Agrarian Program Director, Virginie Pointeau:

We are pleased to announce that two of the four 2014 NAP trainees (three apprentices and one intern) have officially begun their apprenticeships! Samantha Bradford, from Waveland, Mississippi, arrived at the San Juan Ranch in early March, and is now fully immersed in calving season on the ranch. Drew Cole, George Whitten and Julie Sullivan's previous apprentice, graduated from his NAP year in March and is staying on at the ranch to work alongside Julie, George and Sam for the season. Justine Sanfilippo, from Fayetteville, New York, arrived at James Ranch Artisan Cheese in mid-March and is also currently immersed in calving season! The third 2014 NAP apprentice, Eric Cinowalt, will arrive at James Ranch Eggs & Trees later this month. He is from Morro Bay, California. Finally, George and Julie's 5-month summer intern, Shalini Karra, from Moorpark, California, is scheduled to arrive at the San Juan Ranch in May. We are extremely pleased to have these four new agrarians on board, and very much looking forward to working and learning with them over the next 8-12 months. Stay tuned for official introductions and photos.
