With new hands on deck, we are open to evolving the current model.
Overview: We’re attempting a generational transfer. Daughter, Maria, plans on continuing farm, developing an estate cidery, and cooperatively manage and develop an updated farm plan.

Responsibilities: Grow for market organic vegetables from seed to harvest, including office, greenhouse, and field responsibilities.
