Wyomanock Farm is a small sustainable farm located in eastern Rensselaer County of New York. In 2010, Wyomanock Farm was founded by members of the community who were intent on finding healthy, chemically-free, locally grown products. Wyomanock Farm’s sister organization Wyomanock Center operates WestSide Farm Project, an urban community garden program in neighboring Pittsfield, Massachusetts. In 2010, WestSide Farm Project grew over 3000 pounds of vegetables.
In 2011, there will be opportunities to contribute to a wide variety of on-farm activities, potentially including educational programs. The farmer will bring skills necessary to planning and developing small organic farms. We seek a dependable, good-natured farmer with an interest in organic farming and education; good communication skills, and an ability to take initiative and multi-task. Knowledge of permaculture a plus.
The farmer will be expected to work hard 5 1/2 days per week in exchange for room & board and a modest stipend and vegetables when bountiful. Potential for profit sharing opportunity.
Open application period from January 1st – March 1, 2010; however, the position will remain open until filled.
