Heart of the Shepherd’s internship program has been in place since 2009. Over 30 interns have graduated from our program. The internship program at the farm equips students with basic farming skills and arms them with Biblical references to farming and shepherding. The objective of the internship program is to teach an awareness of basic agriculture, develop basic agricultural skills, expose students to the many agricultural parables found in The Bible, and to teach an appreciation for historical agriculture, laced with a healthy appreciation for industrialized agriculture. Students will learn in the same manner as an apprentice learns. Watch the shepherd, practice with the shepherd, and then do the activity unassisted. The farm is primarily a sheep farm, with several hundred sheep, however there are many other activities on the farm and through the ministry, Heart of the Shepherd. There is a cattle herd, horses, donkeys, chickens, at least one goat, lama, alpaca, sheep dogs, barn cats, a Farm Museum, a Farm Store, hay harvest, pecan harvest, walnut harvest, walnut hulling, a wool mill, shearing school, fiber arts retreats and classes, a Bible Garden which produces vegetables and fruit for farm use and for sale, and a Mission Shop. There is a live on site veterinarian and a veterinary care unit for the animals on the farm. Opportunities abound for learning. Dr. Diane Dickinson, the director for the Internship Program, is an agriculturalist with a Bachelors in Agriculture, a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, and over five decades of farm and livestock experience. Following her footsteps each day is sure to include a bountiful harvest of learning. Grandma Wilma is the Bible Garden Tour Guide and harvest Tour Guide. She has been farming and gardening for over seven decades. Walk with her for a few months and learn more about gardening as well as the treasures of The Master Gardener. Internships may be geared toward one of the following 6 areas 1. General Farm & Shepherding Internship: This internship experience includes working in the fields, working with the sheep and other farm animals; assisting with the Pumpkin Festival; providing Christian, agricultural based educational tours; as well as a vast array of support farm tasks such as field and tree maintenance, harvesting, planting, cleaning & fence maintenance; assist in the Farm Animal Barn. 2. Sheep and Shepherding Internship : this internship has it’s primary interest focused on shepherding. The busiest season is the spring season, with many opportunities for learning. Learn what Psalm 23 really means while being the shepherd to the pasture raised flock on the farm. Learn how to give Shepherding Tours, and work in the Farm Animal Barn. 3. Bible Gardening Internship: Learn about natural gardening for sustainability, train to be a Bible Garden Tour guide, assist with Garden related educational activities in the Farm Museum. 4.

Interns will experience some of every segment of farm life, and are not restricted completely to their internship emphasis. We have a saying “Every day is a new day on the farm.” Be ready to be flexible. Nature is unpredictable. Steps of the application process: 1. Submit a Resume 2. Receive an Internship application & return the completed form to our office. 3. Reference checks 4. Personal Interview 5. Background Check Internships are for one semester. Generally the times are as follows: • Spring Semester January – May • Summer Semester May – Mid-Aug or Early Sept. • Fall Semester Early September - December Activities of farm life change with the seasons. • The spring semester is the busiest sheep season to intern, as this is lambing season and sheep shearing on the farm. This is also haying season • The summer semester is the busiest Bible Garden season to intern, as this is harvest season. • The fall semester is a busy evangelism outreach with the Pumpkin Festival and Living Nativity. This is also pecan and walnut harvest season and haying season. Following successful completion of the Internship, the student may apply for the Residency Program. The Residency Program allows the student to remain at the farm for one complete calendar year, experiencing all of the activities of a farm year. This is beneficial in terms of understanding seed time and harvest, and the Biblical Implications. Experience is advantageous, but not required. Internships are full or part time. Compensation for internships may include room, board and a monthly monetary stipend. The stipend is not a salary, and it is performance based. College credit can be given for our internship program. We have worked with many colleges within and outside of the state. Interns have come from New Hampshire, California, Colorado, Kansas, South Carolina, Arizona, Georgia,Kansas, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Kyrgyzstan and Oklahoma. Several graduate interns have been hired to be a part of the Shepherd's Cross and Heart of the Shepherd team.
