Internship information
General Farm Description: "Season's Bounty Farm grows approximately 6 acres of fresh vegetables, melons, and flowers in fabulous soil along the tree-lined Linville Creek in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. The six, 100-foot long hoophouses help extend the season on both ends. We are establishing a blueberry orchard as well, with 500 blueberry plants going in the spring of 2020. We also have about 60 acres of pasture for our flock of sheep. All of our produce is grown without the use of pesticides to provide fresh, healthy, flavorful produce for the local community. Our produce is marketed through a 180-member CSA (beginning its 15th season) and through the local farmers market, and to local restaurants and stores. Downtown Harrisonburg is only 5 miles away where there is a lot of support for local food and farming. The National Forest and Shenandoah National Park are both within 45 minutes of the farm. "
