Treleven has been fortunate to host interns whose primary interests are farming and the environment. We often partner with Middlebury College.

Barn at Night

Over the years, more than a thousand students in the Environmental Studies Program have spent a night in the barn, delivering lambs and experiencing life and death more intimately.

We have also been very fortunate to be part of the Food Works Program for many years.  This internship helps students gain a hands-on perspective of the local farming, food systems, and food challenges.  The intern works at the farm two days a week, learning all aspects of the farm and forest operation, and works at the Addison county Parent/Child Center two days a week, learning about food scarcity, public programs that support nutrition, and food preparation for large groups.  Our Board member, John Elder, designed and taught the course that accompanied the Internships.
