Rogue Farm Corps
Rogue Farm Corps (RFC) trains and equips the next generation of farmers and ranchers through hands on educational programs and the preservation of farmland. We work to support our local agricultural economy and serve as a model for other communities.
RFC offers farm training programs for both beginning interns and advanced apprentices of agriculture that combine rigorous hands on training, classroom learning, and farm based independent study. RFC’s programs provide real world experience on a diverse network of family farms that host program participants. Our Farm Preservation Program helps beginning farmers access land and capital, and creates tools and resources to help retirement age farmers plan for succession. For more information, please visit www.roguefarmcorps.org.

Responsibilities and weekly schedule will vary throughout the year depending upon program needs. The coordinator position requires the use of your own private computer, cell phone, and vehicle with mileage and technology access compensation. No health benefits are offered at this time.
