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.

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.
