HP is looking for up to three interns who will live and work on our farm for two months between June and December. The start and end dates are flexible, but we ask for two full months commitment (June and July, July and August, etc). HP will provide the summer interns with private, on-farm housing accommodations and a living stipend of $1000/ month, and some meals. We are excited to offer this opportunity to qualified candidates, and we are confident that this internship will provide a well-rounded agricultural business experience that will be an asset in any future career. Interns will be working with our farm crew, assisting with daily chores and feeding of our cattle, hogs, and sheep. Interns will also help with infrastructure projects (fencing, water lines, construction), and will help rotate our herds daily to new paddocks. Paid hourly shifts at our retail store are also available.
We are an energetic, innovative, and growing company. We value energy, creativity, and flexibility. We also emphasize fun and laid back enjoyment of the farm with hard work and an intense dedication to what we do. We favor applicants who can demonstrate an ability to balance these values.
Educational Opportunities: We offer college credit to interns who are ENVS minors at the University of Mississippi. Outside of this program we do not offer accredited educational opportunities.
Skills Desired: Must be able to work outdoors in the heat and complete moderately physically demanding tasks.
Stipend: $1000/ month
