Looking for internationals to train and help at your farm?

MESA is thrilled to introduce the Sustainable Agriculture and Global Exchange (SAGE) program, an initiative designed to connect international farmers with U.S.-based farms and organizations. SAGE offers affordable, J-1 visa-designated training opportunities, fostering sustainable farming practices and global agricultural leadership.

Key Highlights:

  • Host farms provide Stewards with guidance and supervised, hands-on training averaging 40 hours/week. Hosts also provide a lodging/food/stipend package. Stewards typically train with one Host site for 6-12 months.

  • MESA oversees the matching process between ag-experienced, enthusiastic Stewards and Host partners. We also provide Stewards with legal trainee visas, health insurance, educational enrichment,  and 24/7 coordinator support.

  • SAGE is affordable! Hosting with MESA is less expensive or comparable to many agricultural internship programs, and less than a typical hourly wage. 

  • Finally, you and your team will engage in a unique cultural exchange and pass on your knowledge to the next generation of farmers.
