Jefferson County WSU FIELD Program
Jefferson County FIELD is an educational program that provides a multidisciplinary study into sustainable agriculture. Developed by farmers and the Jefferson County WSU Small Farms Team, the FIELD program combines formal instruction with a field-based internship on a Jefferson County farm.
Each participant in the FIELD program is paired with a host farm
mentor who provides the intern with comprehensive instruction in the operations of their farm. Farm-based learning is supplemented by weekly intensive workshops in such diverse subject areas as humane animal slaughter, water law, farm construction, cider production and marketing.
FIELD interns, mentors, and Jefferson County WSU staff collaborate to create individual learning plans that guide each student through their course of study and a culminating independent project. Interns may complete up to three FIELD semesters for academic credit or continuing education units (CEUs).
