Farming Internships Available in Big Sky Country This Summer

*New Tool Connects Prospective Interns to Montana Farms and Ranches*



This summer, get outdoors, get your hands dirty, and experience the tough
but rewarding work of a farmer as an intern on a Montana farm. In addition
to sweeping mountain views, big skies, and grizzly bears, the state of
Montana boasts a rich and varied agricultural landscape producing
everything from kale to cattle on farms and ranches ranging from a quarter
acre to a quarter of a million acres.


Farm Link Montana <http://farmlinkmontana.org/> is a new, free resource
that connects prospective interns with Montana farms looking for an extra
hand. The website features a map displaying farms with available
internships, information about each farm, and a common application form, so
that you only need to fill out a single application for all the farms you
are interested in. The site also includes resources to help you start your
own farm or ranch in Montana, along with tools to connect with mentors and
find land.


Current opportunities <http://farmlinkmontana.org/map/> include working
with everything from fire-roasted chiles to chickens and pigs to
large-scale grains.


Although each arrangement is different, farming and ranching internships
typically run for the duration of the growing season, from May to October.
Start dates vary, however, so get your applications in early to increase
your chances of success!
