Farm Internship Project

The 2014 Legislature authorized L&I to establish the Farm Internship Project to allow interns to safely work on small farms to learn about farming practices and obtain hands-on experience in farming activities.

Counties included in this project are Chelan, Grant, Island, Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Lincoln, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, Spokane, Thurston, Whatcom, and Yakima. Farms in these counties with annual sales of less than $250,000 per year are eligible to enroll in this program.

The information below explains how farms and individuals can participate.
