Lennard Ag Company is a family-owned, three-generations deep business that’s been producing and delivering quality vegetables and grain crops since 1947. Specializing in potatoes and corn we grow over 6000 acres. We combine strong industry traditions with cutting-edge agricultural practices, advanced technology, and the latest management practices. We look to share and pass on our knowledge of farming to others starting in the field.
Our Internship Program offers students the opportunity to practically apply the knowledge they’ve learned in the classroom. We have great internship opportunities for three college students at our locations in Howe, IN and Samaria, MI. These would be full-time paid summer internships working directly under our Senior Agronomist. Housing is provided.
All applicants should submit their resume to email@example.com by February 28, 2011. Please place “Agronomy Internship” in the subject line. Learn more about our organization at www.lennardag.com
