Sustainable Farming Internships and Apprenticeships
Practical Farmers of Iowa’s Labor4Learning program is offering 16 on-farm job opportunities in 2019, working with farmers across Iowa who are willing to provide additional training on what it takes to run a farm business. The Labor4Learning program provides someone thinking about a career in farming with a paid on-farm job, as well as training on record-keeping, marketing, and other skills. Each participating trainer farm in the program was approved by a committee of Practical Farmers of Iowa members to serve as qualified teachers. The farms represent a diversity of enterprises including row crops, small grains, multiple species of livestock, fruits, vegetables, and more. Resumes and references are submitted directly to the trainer farm.
