About Deep Hollow Farm
We are looking for a friendly and energetic farm manager with a passion for local organic farming. Deep Hollow Farm is an Equal Opportunity Employer established in 2012 with the mission to restore the property at 46 Deep Hollow Rd to a productive organic farm, following sustainable and sound ecological practices. We have been selling non-certified organic produce at the Chester Sunday Market and elsewhere since 2014. In 2017 we transitioned to no-till growing, cultivated one acre with one greenhouse, and began expanding to 1.4 acres for 2018 (max arable land is 3 acres).
About the Position
This fall we are building a centralized barn/road-side stand, and building an additional greenhouse and high tunnel in the spring (permitting in process). Farmer will increase the area under production and complete organic certification. We would also like to increase our CSA membership; increase restaurant sales; and add an additional well. We are trialing some winter microgreens and low tunnel greens, with the possibility to expand if there is a market. Possible future markets include chickens or other animals, and nursery plants.
Full-time annual living-wage salary based on experience; healthcare reimbursement upon discussion; federal holidays plus 20 days vacation
Starting January 1, 2018 preferred
