Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: The Farm and Forge is a family operated farm with a working blacksmith on site. Farming by the principals of stewardship, holistic care, maintenance, and management, integrated and stacked systems, regenerative and rotational grazing; we focus on all three pillars of Sustainability including economics. Specifically we take a thoughtful approach to how our farm is being built; with inputs not only from our farm but from the surrounding community as well. We engage with the community to build strategic relationships that are mutually beneficial and close loops in our food systems. These opportunities allow us to turn waste streams from our farm and from local businesses into inputs for the farm which reduces the cost to operate the farm initially and even further more as the farm becomes more established.
