*Accepting internship applications for May-September 2020.*


Unadilla Community Farm was founded in 2013 by a group of volunteers dedicated to the goals of the back-to-the-land movement. We are building an off-grid solar-powered homestead and education center following the principles of organic agriculture and permaculture design.

Our accredited internship program has attracted interns from around the world. Interns gain hands-on experience in no-till organic farming, regenerative agroforestry, permaculture, natural building, and food preservation. Our internship is more than just a beginning farmer training program. It is an immersion into a rural, sustainable way of life.

We grow 200+ varieties of organic annual and perennial vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and cold-hardy fruits, nuts, and berries. We run a hyper-local CSA program for families within a 25-mile radius, and also sell to natural food stores and restaurants in our area.


Additional Information about Accommodations:

We are using natural building methods, as well as local and salvaged materials, to construct our farm’s infrastructure. Our completed projects include a skoolie (converted school bus), chicken tractor, high tunnel, and an off-grid tiny home with solar panels, rainwater collection, and wood-burning stove. We are in the process of completing a traditional New England timber framed barn on a rammed tire “Earthship” foundation.

Sleeping accommodations include 2 single bedrooms in the barn loft, 2 double bedrooms in the skoolie (converted school bus), and 1 large tent on a platform. You are also welcome to pitch your own tent on various tent platforms and camp spots around the property. All organic gourmet vegetarian/vegan meals and unlimited snacks are provided, and typically eaten communally.
