Broken Shovels Farm Internships
Want to learn about animal husbandry, food production, small-scale farming? Or just wanting to be behind-the-scenes as we make cheese, deliver babies, and care for the many wonderful critters who call our farm home? Learn to manage a small market garden? Assist with building projects using alternative and up-cycled materials? Be involved in projects that benefit animals lives?

…then this may be a perfect opportunity for you.
