Rogue Farm Corps is the only organization in Oregon that offers structured, entry-level and advanced farmer training programs rooted in real-world farm businesses. We work with host farms and ranches located in the Rogue Valley, the Portland Metro Area, the South Willamette Valley, and Central Oregon, offering experiences with vegetable production, animal husbandry, dairy, and more. Please note that 2020 partner host sites are still being confirmed and will be updated on our website throughout the application period.

Rogue Farm Corps’ entry-level Internship Program is a great way to dive into sustainable agriculture. Participants gain significant experience training on a farm or ranch in Oregon through this residential immersion program that lasts 6-8 months (typically April – October). It combines full-time hands-on field training under the guidance of a mentor farmer with 15-20 local classes and farm tours and 4-5 discussion sessions. No experience is necessary.

Rogue Farm Corps’ advanced Apprenticeship Program is for those who have at least one full growing season of farm/ranch experience (or equivalent). The Apprenticeship is an immersive on-farm program for those who are seeking to delve further into the art and business of agriculture. It typically runs Feb or March through November or December, and can last for two seasons. Full-time hands-on field training, classes, weekend gatherings around the state, farm tours, discussions, and guidance on farm business development will help you gain the skills to plan, design, and run integrated farming systems on your own.
