2014 Employment Positions
Whether you think you might want to own your own farm business one day, or just want to go through life knowing how to grow your own organic food, an internship at King's Hill can be a valuable learning experience. Our crew eats, lives, and works approximately 40 hours per week together and most positions last through mid-October.
