Small Farms Homesteading Internship Program (SFHIP)

  • Offers hands-on training opportunities for future farmers to learn the skills necessary to operate an organic farm with an emphasis on community education and charitable support to those in need.
  • For those with a more homesteading or food security mindset, our farm serves as a demonstration plot so they can learn the tricks of the trade that they can apply to their home efforts for improved efficiency and success.
  • In the near future we are excited to incorporate a comprehensive, multi-year training curriculum which gives participants the opportunity to manage their own parcel of land to gain experience in all facets of running a small farm business.
