Rogue Farm Corps seeks Interns

Location: Southern Oregon

Thanks for your interest in Rogue Farm Corps Farms Next Internship Program. Farms Next assists beginning farmers expand their knowledge and experience of sustainable agriculture by creating an exchange of knowledge and skills across a broad spectrum of small farms and ranches in our Rogue Valley community.  With over 10 participating farms, Farms Next offers interns a training curriculum, greatly expanding the opportunities for learning offered in a traditional farm internship program.  By completing the training curriculum, interns are exposed to the breadth of knowledge and skills necessary to manage a small farm of their own.

Rogue Farm Corps will assist in the recruitment and placement of interns on participating farms.  Final hiring decisions are up to the individual farmers.  Details of work expectations, living situations, stipends and other issues are worked out between individual farmers and interns.

You can expect to work hard and learn a lot.  Our community has a vast array of small farms, from market vegetable fields to grass fed livestock, seed growing to commercial dairying, poultry to CSA’s.  As a participant in Farms Next, you will be exposed to all of these diverse offerings in our Southern Oregon community.
