Internship

Posted 1/28/2018 11:28pm by Jesse Fleisher.

Every year, we take on two full-season interns who are passionate about experiencing life on a small farm and learning why and how we get it all done. We take the time to teach as we work, and every intern leaves with real skills and great life experience. We work hard, have a lot of fun, and produce a lot of food for our community. January and February are when we collect applications and make our selections. It's a good life here on the farm. Interns receive modest stipend, room, and board. Perhaps you'd like to join us for the year?

We market fresh, healthy, local food in Nashville, TN and surrounding communities through our CSA subscription service, at weekly farmers markets, and to restaurants via the Nashville Grown food hub.

Teaching and learning is part of our mission.
