The Darthia Farm Internship is a great opportunity to experience living and working on a small family farm that provides food to the local community. Internships can last from three to nine months and allow you to learn first hand how we cultivate a garden, distribute produce, meat, dairy, and other staples to the public, and how we care for livestock. We will be hiring three full time farm interns this season with the earliest start date being April 1.
