Fluid Farms

Internship Experience

"Fluid Farms is an incredible internship site, where we grow organic food using striped bass. I had the pleasure of helping during the construction phase of the operation, which allowed me to learn how the system works and how I could build and design my own system.

The owners of the farm are experts in what they do and produce the best tasting vegetables in the state of Maine. I have learned so many new skills and have met some amazing people within the industry. This real world business experience has changed my entire outlook on how it all works.

Even though my internship is over, the owners of the farm have offered me a job during the upcoming semester, and I plan to work for them full-time after graduating from UNE."
