L&I Looking for Farmers to Teach Next Generation
Imagine being able to pass on your knowledge about farming to an intern.
The Department of Labor and Industries is looking for farmers in Yakima County who want to be involved in the department's farm internship program.
Project coordinator Kelly Kane tells KIT News that the goal is to make sure that farming lives on in the state.
A transfer of knowledge to the younger generation. Many farmers want to retire but keep their farms going.
If you own a small farm with sales of less than $250,000 a year, your farm is eligible for the farm internship program in which up to three interns could help you farm this summer and fall.
If you are interested contact Kelly Kane at the Department of Labor and Industries at 509-324-2663 or 1-800-509-8847.
