Milmore Downs Internship
We welcome energetic and motivated people interested in learning and becoming involved in all aspects of the farm.
Many agriculture students from all over the world have visited and stayed with us here on the farm in Scargill learning about organic and biodynamic farming.
Interns and students normally spend 2-4 months completing a practical period that is part of their studies and are involved in all activities on the farm, house/kitchen and gardens.
We normally take 1 student at a same time, between November and April.
Students receive food and board and live in a basic self-contained “sleep-out” where they cook and can spend free time. You will need some experience in cooking and taking care of yourself.
What you need to bring:
Good gum boots (essential!), and maybe some light work boots. Work trousers – they can be old – two pairs and some shorts, work t-shirts and sweatshirts (maybe they get worn out during the stay!) Of course an old raincoat, a pocket knife, torch, sewing stuff to stitch up you trousers again. Be aware that New Zealand can have three seasons in one day and you will need really warm clothes even if you are here for summer months. Bring everything you would take if you go on a long adventurous journey.
