Organic Farm Manager in Long Island, NY

Background

Youngs Farm was founded in 1893 and is one of the few remaining working farms in Nassau County. It is currently being operated by the 4th and 5th generation of the Youngs family. We are located less than 30 miles from New York City in a bucolic setting with high-quality schools nearby. In addition to the farm itself, we have a farm stand and bakery on-premise. The store sells our produce, baked goods, prepared foods which are made in our commercial kitchen and a selection of grocery items and housewares.

We have approximately 15 acres of land in production. Roughly ⅓ of that land is rotated into cover crop annually. There are a few different opportunities to expand into adjacent land in the near future. We have been farming organically for 4 seasons, with the long term intention of organic certification - the candidate would have an integral role in the long term planning of the farm and its growing, harvest and management methodology.

50-80K/year + benefits. Please email resume and cover letter to [email protected] for full job description.
