FarmsNext is a full season entry-level residential internship program that combines hands-on training and skills-based education in sustainable agriculture. As a student intern, you will live and work full-time on a host farm, receiving up to 1,500 hours of on-farm training and learning in-depth skills from your mentor. Your residential farm training experience is combined with farm tours, classes, and discussion circles throughout the region, as well as opportunities for independent study. Student interns are exposed to a vast array of knowledge and expertise by engaging in the daily life of vibrant, agricultural communities.
The FarmsNOW apprenticeship program is for those with some farm experience who are seeking mastery in the art and business of sustainable agriculture. Hands-on training, classes, seminars, and guidance on farm business development will help you gain the skills to plan, design, and run integrated farming systems on your own. This full-immersion program is designed those who have completed the FarmsNext internship program, or have two years of on-farm experience. You will live and work full-time on a host farm, receive up to two seasons of on-farm training, and learn in-depth skills from their mentor farmer.
