Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Hi! Thanks for your interest in our farm! We, Hannah and Daniel Miller, are looking to add an enthusiastic person to our crew. Experience is appreciated but not necessary. This new crew member should be eager to do hard manual labor outdoors and to learn more about what it takes to run an efficient organic vegetable farm. Our farm was the recipient of the first John Kinsman Beginning Farmer Food Sovereignty Prize, and we were both tutored by organic farming pioneers! We are now in our 10th season of farming near Zumbro Falls, MN and are eager to pass on tricks of the trade. We sell our produce to food coops and the Rochester Farmers Market. Interns will get to work with our innovative small scale farming techniques including greenhouse and high tunnel cultivation, electric tractor weed-management, cutting-edge organic soil management and so much more. Interns will have a unique opportunity to learn hands-on with us in the field and get to be part of all aspects of the vegetable operation. Along with field work, harvesting, and planting, Interns will also have the opportunity to work in a really fun farmers market environment in Rochester, MN. There will also be the opportunity to connect socially with our organic farming neighbors and their interns at our weekly community potlucks. We are proud to be part of a really fun community of veggie farmers and it is always a highlight of the summer to connect with that group in work and play.
