Now in our fourth year of exponential growth in sales and production, we need more help than ever before to keep production moving forward, ensure that our animals live their best possible “-ness” (à la Joel Salatin), and allow the farmer-owners to step back and take a deep breath now and then. In 2021, we doubled poultry production for the second year in a row to try to meet customer demand, which means that we ordered about 10,000 chicks, 1,200 ducklings, and 300 turkey poults to raise over the grass season (from March to around Halloween). Similarly, we bought in more piglets (in addition to our farm-raised Red Wattles and crosses) and veal calves than ever before. Infrastructure and support staff also must grow to fit.
[Seasonal and year-round, full-time and part-time positions are available. See our other listings, here or on Facebook.]
Job description: What kinds of things does a Livestock Farm Manager do?
