About.

*Now accepting interns for the 2019 season (May-September).*

Unadilla Community Farm is a 12-acre off-grid organic fruit & vegetable farm and permaculture education center in Upstate New York.

Our accredited internship program has attracted interns from North & South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and New Zealand. Interns will gain hands-on experience in low-till organic farming, regenerative agroforestry, permaculture, natural building, and food preservation.

We grow a diversity of organic annual and perennial vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and fruits to sustain us throughout the year. We provide produce to local natural food stores and restaurants in our region, and we offer a CSA program for families in our area. Our orchard consists of over 50 varieties of cold-hardy fruit and nut trees and berries. We also forage for wild foods, and raise chickens for eggs. We follow a whole foods, plant-based, vegetarian/vegan diet.
