Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: "County Line Harvest is a 115-acre certified organic diversified produce farm. The farm was founded in 2000, on a plot on the Marin-Sonoma County line, and has since moved and grown to encompass two growing sites, one in the rolling hills of west Marin County, 10 miles from Petaluma, the other in the Coachella Valley in Riverside County. Our two locations allow us to provide fresh, sustainable produce to communities in the Bay Area and LA year round, and allow us to offer our employees consistent full time, and year-round work on both farms. We specialize in greens - unique and heirloom lettuces, specialty salad greens, Italian chicories - as well as a diverse range of root, fruit, flowers and vegetable crops."
