Your experiences will range from entering invoices to payroll processing and social media strategy. You’ll also receive an overview of all CFS departments and have the opportunity to attend Farm Fest, county fairs, and other industry events.

Here’s what one previous intern had to say about her experience.

“My day was always changing! I worked in the office, rode with salesmen, visited with customers, planned events, wrote press releases, and handled any other odd jobs put before me. I learned to be persistent. You may not get a response out of someone at first when working on a task, but it is important to persist until your duties are fulfilled.”
