Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Unbound Glory Farm is a small vegetable & flower farm with a food truck, located in CT’s Quiet Corner (close to RI and MA). We follow regenerative agricultural practices, including no-till, cover-cropping, use of carbonaceous and living mulches, and more. We grow and sell year-round, utilizing our 4 high tunnels for winter greens production. We also have a food truck and wood-burning pizza wagon that we use on weekends to serve seasonally-inspired food at local hot spots (with strict COVID safety measures in place) as well as drive-through contact-less pickup at the farm. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in farm-to-table food operations- from seed, to field, to plate- as well as anyone interested in learning more about food security and year-round food production in New England.
