This 8-week program grants one student the chance to live in Bakersfield, CA; nationally recognized for exceptional row crop production – and assist in managing logistics and inventory for harvest, post-harvest, sales, packaging, and delivery to customer base in Southern California.
Agriculture is an everchanging environment and requires individuals with the skill set and capacity to make strategic decisions that integrate into our values as a company and positively impact our growing business. Valpredo Farms and Country Sweet Produce have been fortunate to obtain self-reliant, disciplined, and hardworking interns to help meet our summer goals.
We look forward to assisting our interns in future career development and professional networking; and welcome the continued opportunity to work with the University of Illinois to nurture and teach young adults about the agriculture industry.
