Dates: December 31, 2018 through January 2, 2020 (dates are flexible)

I am hiring an experienced farmer/farm manager to develop an organic vegetable operation and assist in the organic pastured layer operation as needed. I prefer to have this employee /partner to live onsite in a new 2BR farm apartment with laundry, full kitchen and full bath that we provide in exchange for labor hours as a non taxable benefit.

I have substantial infrastructure in place that includes greenhouse, electric fencing, hand and power tools, tractor and implements, commercial refrigeration, washing/packing equipment, poultry processing equipment, solar powered egg washer/grader and shop facility.

If the relationship goes well after a full season we would like to explore a potential business partnership for subsequent seasons.
