The following positions are available for local high school and college students interested in Regenerative Agriculture practices that focus on comprehensive soil health and holistic farming management.
All internships at Kornegay Hereford Farms are a non-paid, temporary position lasting 6-12 months (dependent on program of study). Interns are expected to work between 3 and 6 hours each week. Typical hours are 11am - 3pm depending on seasonal work load. Work schedules are flexible based on school courses and can vary from week to week if need be.
There is a compensatory package consisting of $10/day for travel expense. (We have been known to give interns a couple of steaks as well!)
Before applying please understand that while you are not expected to know all about regenerative farming or livestock management, you will need to display critical thinking skills, time management, and a love for both the land and animals. Regenerative thought processes are developed, nurtured, and built upon through classroom-type scenarios, one-on-one settings, and through daily farm activities. This internship is about more than being a farm hand. An internship at Kornegay Hereford Farms is about understanding the connection between man, animals, and land.
Each week there are unique opportunities for round table discussions about the future of Agriculture and how regenerative practices can dynamically change farming landscapes.
While it is not a guarantee there are sometimes employment opportunities that come about for interns and referrals for future agricultural employment are standards for those who complete the program.
We strive for success and we ask for nothing less. An internship at Kornegay Hereford Farms is a partner relationship. We aim to educate because we believe that investing regenerative skills into agriculturally-minded young adults, our farms and communities are more resilient to the challenges of todays planet.
