FFA - The future of agriculture lies within our youth

River Valley recruits at the top colleges and universities in our area to bring the best new talent to our organization. Our Interns are a part of the team, and gain real-life work experiences and knowledge to apply what they’ve learned in school. In addition to hands-on experience, we also provide training and networking opportunities that enhance their overall experience with us.

For summer internships, we begin the search for candidates in September and October at local career fairs, with offers being extended by December. Check the Upcoming Events page for representatives visiting a college campus near you! We hire for both Agronomy Sales roles and Operations team members.

Spring and fall operations internships are also available to gain additional work experience. We begin sourcing for spring internships in February with March-June work needs. We source fall internships in August for October-December work needs.

Our 2016 summer interns – front row l-r: Heidi Hamilton, Jessica Manthe, Erin Peterson. Back row l-r: Trevor Nelson, Grant Maurer, Keaton Keitzer, Kyle Lafrenz.

The 2017 scholarship deadline was January 31st and applications are now being reviewed. Award recipients will be announced on or before April 1, 2017. Thank you to all who applied.
