Farming Internships in Montana – 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 of an acre to a quarter million acres.
Farm Link Montana 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.
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!
