Montana Farming Internships

Farming Internships Available in Big Sky Country This Summer
New Tool Connects Prospective Interns to Montana Farms and Ranches

Gain hands-on experience through summer internship opportunities for Environmental Science or Environmental Studies majors. Farm Link Montana's Intern Link is a new resource that connects people who are interested in learning to farm or ranch with experienced producers willing to share their expertise. 

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 half an acre to half a 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. 

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!
