Webmaster's note: Farm internship opportunities will be listed through NOFA-VT's Apprentice and Willing Worker Website (below), rather than as individual farm listings here.

NOFA Vermont’s Apprentice and Willing Worker Website Do you want to work on a farm? The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont offers a recently-updated online matchmaking service for farms and apprentices. Create an account at http://nofavt.org/programs/apprentice-willing-worker/ to begin. Both farmers looking for help and apprentices or workers looking for farms can create their own profiles, search listings, and get the contact information they need to find the right match. We recommend that farmers and workers meet in person to discuss their goals and expectations for the season before making final decisions.
