The Sterling Farm is offering up to six 12 week, 32-hour per week, 6-credit internships focused on managing different aspects of our diversified farm. The internships begin on May 15 and end on Aug 14, with a one week break. All interns are eligible for free room and board at the Farm. Applications are accepted beginning February 15th.
Students in this internship will be immersed in the daily management of our small CSA, including vegetable and meat sales, as well as direct sales to the Sterling College kitchen, sales of flowers to the college and outside accounts, and publishing a weekly CSA newsletter. In addition, this intern will explore timely questions about certain products on the farm: which are more profitable? should we add a new product? what breeds of animal are the best for a certain use? etc. The sales and marketing intern also manages and curates social media content for the entire farm.
