About Queens Country Farm Museum:
The Queens County Farm Museum is a 47-acre working farm dating back to 1697. We are a public resource, visited by over 400,000 people each year. The site includes a landmark farmhouse, glass greenhouse, and restored barns which give us a glimpse into our agrarian past. Its rich glacial soil–which attracted European settlers in the 17th century–is cultivated today using sustainable practices, providing people with the freshest food. We are a New York City treasure where historic structures, productive fields, woodland, and livestock bring agricultural history to life.
Queens Farm’s multi-species livestock operation is an integral part of this diversified small farm. The Livestock Coordinator will act as the main point-person within the Agriculture Department for livestock care, under the supervision of the Director of Agriculture. In addition to participating in all aspects of our production farm (from seeding to harvesting), Livestock Coordinator responsibilities include -- but are not limited to -- daily livestock chores, general maintenance, health monitoring, management of supply inventory and feed ordering, ongoing livestock area and infrastructure maintenance, and execution of livestock rotation. The Livestock Coordinator will always have eyes on the animals, and provide regular feedback to supervisors. The position will begin in the winter of 2019.
