Plow and Stars Farm
A junior farm internship is an exciting learning opportunity to spend quality time on a working farm. This is a unique experience where you will care for animals, work the farm, learn new skills, problem solve, and become new leaders.
This will be a mentored work experience led by Mark Walter who is both a farmer and elementary school science teacher.
He will help you build confidence and leadership abilities by taking risks and overcoming challenges while tending to animals and working on projects.
A typical day for a junior farm intern could include:
Animal chores: Junior interns will learn how to take care of our chickens (layers and broilers), pigs, sheep, and goats.
Work projects: These will include building a mobile chicken coop, fixing fence for animal pastures, tending to plants, repairing an old trailer or other small carpentry jobs.
Group activities and farm games: All work and no play, no way! We will do activities and games together that may include a walk around the property, a hike to the creek, shooting hoops, barn ping pong, throwing frisbee for a dog, ultimate frisbee, and more.
