Farm & Orchard Internships
Farm & Orchard Internship:
For summer of 2017, Finnriver is offering a combined farm/orchard internship combining vegetable and berry crop production, poultry and pig husbandry, grains and apple orcharding.
In partnership with the Jefferson County FIELD program, Finnriver offers seasonal farm and/or orchard internships of varying durations. The FIELD (Farming Innovation, Education & Leadership Development) Program is a farm-based internship program developed by Jefferson County farmers and the Washington State University Extension Small Farms Team.
FIELD provides interns the opportunity to study sustainable agricultural enterprises and community-based production systems at diverse farms in the Jefferson County area. Interns are provided formal instruction, field-based application of information, and involvement in projects on farms that produce and market vegetables, fruit, small berries, field crops, poultry, and livestock. Each is based on a host farm that provides a home base with weekly opportunities to observe and engage in different business and marketing approaches through activities at different farms and community resources throughout the season.
If you are interested in an unpaid, educational farm internship with Finnriver, please explore the FIELD internship website and then contact us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
