or southbound greenhorns!

Dear Farmers and Students,
We are pleased to announce a new way that Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) is working to launch beginning farmers in North and South Carolina! CFSA's NEW on-line Internship Referrral Service connects sustainable farms throughout the Carolinas with aspiring farmers looking for hands-on learning opportunities.
CFSA Member Farmers: Post your NC and SC internship openings for free.
Students: Find your dream farm internship in the Carolinas!
Please note that listings are for farms only; the Internship Referral Service is not available for posting positions wanted. If you are seeking an internship, please follow the directions specified in each posting to apply for positions. You must contact the farms directly; CFSA cannot offer matching or placement with this service.
Great Resources to Create a Valuable Internship Experience
The Internship Board also includes updated handbooks to help interns and farmer-mentors get the most out of the experience.
Prospective Intern Handbook: A guide written for interns to help them select the farm and internship that's right for them.
Farmer-Mentor Internship Handbook: A guide written for farmer-mentors to help them understand their role and responsibilities as mentors, design a valuable internship experience, select, train and evaluate their interns, and navigate payment, intern living arrangements and labor laws.
CFSA’s Internship Referral Service is made possible through grant a grant under the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute for Food and Agriculture, administered through the National Center for Appropriate Technology. The Internship Referral Service is a part of CFSA's Growing Green Farmers program, which also includes scholarships to the annual Sustainable Ag. Conference, apprenticeships in South Carolina, and farm tours for beginning farmers.
