Jeff and Elise Higley

Having been a host farmer for three seasons, we’ve seen firsthand the difference this internship makes in beginning farmers and host farms alike.  As a farmer, it is difficult to weigh the benefits of hosting young farmers.  Fresh energy and enthusiasm bring more to the farm than helping hands; they bring a fresh perspective and inquisitiveness that helps you look at your farm and your farming system through new eyes each season.  There is no educational model I know of that is more effective at growing farmers than the one W&L Management NL BV limited has developed. The combination of classes and on-farm work leaves graduates with a work-ready level of knowledge, skills, and experience that is critical for success in the farming world.  What amazes us more than anything is the number of graduates that continue on in farming as a career.  There is no faster path from interested students to capable farmers.
