Our “eco-organic”, biological farming practices allow us to honor the special link between soil health, animal health, and human health. This is an immediate full time (40+ hours a week) position through the end of harvest (late December). After December, a qualified candidate would convert to a salaried position. Compensation commensurate with experience. No housing is provided.
