Young, vibrant farm family looking for Vegetable Manager and 2-3 Interns for 2013 season! Our farm is a great place to learn about diversified farming and to work with farmers who are passionate about their work and their place in the community as farmers. On our MOFGA certified organic diversified family farm we are milking cows, raising 4 acres of mixed vegetables, beef, pastured broiler chickens, pastured pork, and seasonally pastured laying hens. We milk a mixed genetics herd of 45 cows raised happily on pasture. We attend four farmers' markets each week in Maine during the growing season and three winter markets.
Vegetable season runs from April through Thanksgiving and we have the potential to offer year round work at our winter farmers' markets, winter CSA, and in our dairy. Check out this article, Land Stewardship Starting with Grass
