Help Wanted

SHEPHERD/MILKER
This will be a full-time position. Responsibilities will include helping with facility construction, daily sheep milking, pasture rotation, animal husbandry, and irrigation of pastures. Farming experience is required—with dairy, livestock and/or tractor experience a plus. A good work ethic, dedication to organic farming and a love for animals are also all necessary qualities. This would be a great position for someone who is interested in starting their own farm business in the future and would like to get experience with a whole system operation. Starting date is flexible, ideally before the end of March. Compensation dependent upon experience.

FARMERS’ MARKET SELLER/MILKER
This will be a part-time position (or positions) to begin in late spring/early summer. Primary responsibilities will be running a stall at local farmers’ markets and deliveries to restaurants and vendors, plus two to three shifts weekly in the milking parlor. No prior experience required but knowledge of fine cheese, livestock and organic farming are all a plus. Compensation will be an hourly wage dependent upon experience. (This would be a good position for a student--an internship or apprenticeship is a possibility.)
