    Lady Liberty Farm in Rensselaerville, NY

    Looking for a Winter Farm Assistant/Manager (potentially longer if the
    situation works for everyone)

    We are an Eco/Holistic Educational Organic Farm and Retreat Center in
    Upstate NY.  Our 90 acre property is at a 2000 ft elevation with an 8
    acre lake, several ponds & creeks and mostly wooded.  We specialize
    in spirituality, sustainability, healing, heritage produce, livestock,
    flower essence, aromatherapy and herbal products.

    We have extensive gardens full of medicinal & culinary herbs, small
    fruits and produce. The breeds of chickens, ducks, pigs and rabbits,
    that we've chosen for the farm, are all on the American Livestock
    Conservancy's list of critical, watching or recovering species.  We
    also have dairy goats and make cheese, yogurt and kefir.

    We are looking for winter/year round WWOOFers and/or a farm manager for
    longer term.  Non smokers, no alcohol or drug use.  This person or
    persons need to be able to focus, multitask and have awareness of
    their actions and the potential results of those actions.    Balanced
    and self directed learners, creative problem solvers and people able
    to think outside of the box, those with the passion to experiment.
    Experience is helpful but even more important is a willingness to
    learn and be open.

    Our ideal situation would be a long term synergistic partnership with
    a couple or a group of individuals looking to create a wholistic, sustainable
    community.  We have the land and a vision and need the intelligent
    input and energy from those that want to learn and share their gifts.
    Plant knowledge, building/carpentry skills, alternative energy knowledge,
    previous farm experience and management skills definitely a plus

    Opportunities would be available to teach, learn and share.  We are working

    on putting a 24'x48' hoop house over some of our existing raised beds so

    we can raise food over the winter.  We also have a coliseum aeroponic

    system that we would like to get set up and experiment with.

We have a room available in our main building with use of facilities
(kitchen & bath).

Please call Rachel at (518) 797-3373.

Hello, are you still looking for people to come help out on your farm? I have experience with herbal medicine, organic and bio-dynamic gardening, raising chickens, some beekeeping, some architecture and construction and marketing, advertising. I also sew, knit (I would love to raise sheep for wool) cook, bake, can and preserve food (jams, pickles, sauerkraut) and homeschool my 6 and 2 year old. I would love to homeschool any other children who might live on your farm. I also do yoga and can teach yoga to children and beginners. Pleae let me know if you are still looking. Thank you.

Hi my name is Alexandra Budz, I am a recent graduate of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH. I am currently a intern at Paradise Acres Farm in Elgin, SC. I have learned a great deal about free range and cage free chicken, annd also soil quality and how to improve it if needed along with growing all natural produce. If you have any opportunities that are open I would be very interested.

Thank you in advance for your time.
What are you saying? I thought you said that Santa gave you that. And this tiny ad:
paul's patreon stuff got his videos and podcasts running again!
