Greg and Jan Judy help future graziers get started without land or livestock by offering internships at Green Pasture Farm in Rucker, Missouri. The internships which are at six-months or one year terms provide not just experience, but a background in practices. The Judy's also offer on Farm Consulting, Farm Tours and an annual three-day Grazing School in May.
Soil Centric's Pro Tip
Prior farming experience is not necessary to make a great candidate for a grazing intern at Green Pastures Farm. Interns with a hard work ethic, great attitude and good communication skills will learn cutting edge grazing techniques as well as income-generating extras like how to turn trees removed from silvopastures into lumber and a growing medium for shitake mushrooms.
Applications are generally due at the end of August for the following April. Potential interns will be invited to the farm for a short visit to make sure there’s a good fit.
