About.

*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.

We offer monthly off-farm field trips & free classes, such as permaculture design, natural building, soap making, and foraging.

Sleeping accommodations include 2 single bedrooms in the barn, and 2 double bedrooms in the skoolie (converted school bus). You are also welcome to pitch your own tent.
