(MEDINA, ND – Mar. 24, 2016) – FARRMS is now accepting applications for an opportunity to learn hands-on farming and ranching skills with the FARRMS Intern Program. Farm owners and operators are also encouraged to apply to become a host farm.  


The program will provide beginning farmers and ranchers’ real world training in sustainable agriculture through an innovative cooperative education program. FARRMS combines hands-on training, classroom learning and farm-based education on a diverse network of family farms in North Dakota. Experienced farmers have the opportunity to share their skills and knowledge with the next generation of farmers. 

Interns may choose the type of farm or farming you would like to learn. Participants that qualify for the program will live and work full time on a host farm for a growing season receiving ongoing instruction and learning in-depth skills unique to the host farmer’s operation.  Slots are limited so apply as soon as possible. 

Farm tours and a free library of books will broaden the experience and expose interns to the vast array of knowledge and expertise in our farming community. In addition to the hands-on education and training, participants in the FARRMS program are offered a sense of community and social networking unavailable in many farm internship programs. The goal of the FARRMS internship program is to prepare beginning farmers and ranchers with the fundamental skills and concepts of operating a successful farm. 

Interns begin networking with potential farms any time after applying and should be placed by May 15. The season ends anytime until the end of November. Applications can be downloaded at http://www.farrms.org/farrms-intern-program.html and must be submitted as soon as possible. Room and board, tuition and a $200 a week stipend will be provided based on individual host farms. Farms may host up to three interns. 

For more information contact FARRMS at info@farrms.org or 701-486-3569. 

FARRMS is a nonprofit based in Medina that focuses on sustainable and organic farming, local food and farm to school.
