Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Holly Hill is far more than a market garden farm! We are a certified organic, non- profit farm that grows vegetables, herbs, flowers and seedlings. The farm uses no-till regenerative farming methods. We were founded with an educational mission, and our programming includes summer camp experiences, on-site field trips and community service opportunities for teenagers who grow produce for local food banks. Today the farm grows produce for an onsite farm stand, farmer’s market, and wholesale customers. Additionally the farm grows a wide variety of seedlings for our annual Plant Sale.
