Lake View Farm, located in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon has internships available for the 2012 season. The Farm offers all natural, additive and hormone free, pasture fed beef, pork, lamp, chicken, turkey, eggs and Oregon’s First Cow Share. They are close to three major market centers, Eugene, Corvallis and Albany allowing for unusual marketing opportunities. Sustainability and providing their family and animals with a peaceful lifestyle are paramount and offering people the opportunity to eat REAL food is their goal.
They offer three internship levels for those interested in a hands-on farming experience. From novice to those more experienced farm hands, there are many opportunities to learn and develop your knowledge of farm practices and principles.
If you’re looking for a well-financed, work-without-a-hitch, typical commercial farming style experience, Lake View Farm probably isn’t what you need. But if you want to learn how to carve out your own niche in the competitive world of agriculture, if you want to raise REAL food for your family and others, if you want to live the best lifestyle there is, they may have something to expand your experience.
General expectations for all intern positions are: 1) a genuine interest in sustainable farming; 2) a positive, can-do attitude; 3) a willingness to work hard, long hours; 4) a teachable mind-set
