Students will interact with agricultural lenders and the Farm Credit System through a one-week internship, a field trip to Enfield, CT, and will be required to complete an on-farm case study during the semester of their enrollment in the course. Students also do an internship the previous summer, and an in-depth on-site case study during the course.
