Potter Hill Farm in Grafton Seeking Partner / Livestock Manager

February 3, 2019

February 3, 2019

Potter Hill Farm, Grafton, MA

We have historically grazed animals on the roughly 40 acres of pasture, but I currently only use an acre or so for certified organic vegetables. The farm is owned by the Grafton Land Trust with a very favorable 5 year lease. At the end of a mile-long dead end hill, with views of Worcester and Mt Wachusett, the farm is a special place to work. I stopped raising beef and pork after our first child was born. Since our second was born this fall, I’ve ruled out getting back into meat in the foreseeable future as my wife works full-time off the farm. I did have 80 layers this season, but I am happy to pass the torch on eggs too if desired.
