Hi all -

I work with Rogue Farm Corps, a program that helps to train aspiring farmers/ranchers through hands-on immersion on sustainable host farms. We have some great host farms in Oregon that are doing pastured poultry production. http://terrafarmanaturals.com has a pastured laying flock and does pastured broilers, in addition to pastured cow and goat dairy. They are looking for a student intern for 2015 through our program. Here's some more info:

Aspiring Livestock Producers Needed. Join Rogue Farm Corps in 2015!
Applications are now open for positions throughout Oregon.

Interested in learning how to raise grass-fed meat? Want to know what it takes to run a sustainable cow or goat dairy? How about pastured eggs? Many of our participating host farms specialize in sustainable livestock and/or dairy production, and a few focus on both vegetable AND animal production for the student who wants to learn it all. Please browse the listings of host farms on our website for more details: http://roguefarmcorps.org

Rogue Farm Corps' FarmsNext program is an entire season of hands-on training and skill-based education in sustainable agriculture for aspiring farmers and ranchers. This immersive on-farm experience combines field training with a mentor farmer, classroom learning with agricultural professionals and expert farmers, tours of local farms, and opportunities for farm-based independent study. Positions available on a diverse network of commercial family farms in four communities across Oregon. No experience necessary to apply. More info http://roguefarmcorps.org

Rogue Farm Corps trains the next generation of farmers and ranchers through hands-on educational programs. Our host farms are located in four cluster around Oregon: the Rogue Valley, the Portland Metro Area, the South Willamette Valley, and Central Oregon. For complete program descriptions, information on our host farms, and applications, visit our website: http://roguefarmcorps.org
