At Big Island Farms Internships, we’re offering an exciting opportunity for students to gain degree related experience and receive crucial internship credits. Our internship program runs during the spring, summer, and fall semesters on the Big Island Farms property. It’s an opportunity for students to challenge themselves, learn new practices and techniques, and become an integral part of our farm experience in Hawaii. If accepted to our program, each student will spend ten weeks on our organic permaculture farm. Hard work is expected, but in return students will build many new connections, gain valuable hands-on experience, and have a chance to reconnect to the land and the source of the foods we consume; not to mention the travel and exploration of the Hawaii Island Archipelago on weekends and during your mid-term break.
Why Big Island Farms Internships
Through hands-on agricultural based programs, we offer opportunities for young adults to become stewards of the land and build upon their knowledge, spirit, and passions.
An immersive learning environment built on the pillars of humbly serving the land, supporting the local community, and functioning with respect to the Hawai’ian culture, values, and ecological systems.

I learnt so much and had the best time! I am so happy to have met all the amazing people who are part of the Big Island Farms community, to share myself in this community and for the opportunity to experience the beauty of Hawaii, its sacred landscapes and its culture. I already look forward in excitement to hopefully coming back one day!
My time as an intern at Big Island Farms can be summed up by an abundance of compassion, inspiration, and thrill. No one greater than another, and no one absent in any moment throughout my whole experience.
My time here at Big Island Farms has been nothing but a blessing in my life. I have not only learned so much here but I have grown as a person in so many unexpected ways. I want to say a big thank you to the directors. They are amazing people and made my stay here even more amazing!! I will miss this farm and everyone in it!
