The Farm Mentorship Program connects Carleton students with local farmers. Mentees perform general farm chores, participate in publicity and business planning, and engage in research. Mentees may also act as liaisons between the farm and Carleton.

The program runs for the course of the entire year, and mentees are expected to visit the farm every week for 3 HOURS. The length of the program gives mentees the opportunity to experience the farm at different stages during the growing season.

20 students have Mentorships at the following farms:
