The Loyola Student Farm offers six internship positions every summer. The internships are offered to Loyola students of all backgrounds, with or without agricultural experience. We offer Loyola students the opportunity to come together from May to August to embrace their inner farmer. Daily responsibilities on the farm include chicken duties, harvesting, planning, team meetings, managing the CSA and Farmers Market, bread making, and overall maintenance for the land.
With the farm being student-run, interns will have the opportunity to explore their own ideas and interests in sustainable and agricultural topics. Interns will have the freedom to work on group projects and make decisions as a team. Previous independent projects have been food preservation, creating a food forest, turkey production, building cold frames, organizing the farmers market/CSA, and honey extraction.
