Farming Internships

We strive to provide a holistic educational experience to first-year farmers and provide two farming internship options: full-season and short-season. We are incredibly proud of our farming internship program. Many of our past full-season farming interns currently have successful farming careers. Between 2010 and 2016, 22 full-season farming interns graduated and 18 of them farmed during the 2017 growing season. Several of our short-season interns have also gone on to farm.
