A private, conserved 1,700-acre island off Cape Cod is looking for an experienced, hardworking, resourceful couple to manage a farm devoted to preservation of the natural landscape of the island. The setting is remote and pristine, with housing in a farmhouse overlooking the small harbor. The job requires a balance between isolation and hospitality. In the summer months, the three other houses on the island are filled with vacationers. During the winter months the island is empty. It is a full-time job for two people in the summer and a part time job in the winter. Duties include maintenance of buildings and farm equipment, operation of island boat, assistance to summer visitors, maintaining island vegetable garden, island patrol, trail mowing and maintenance, management of livestock and grazing program, and light record keeping. The position of Island Manager requires an adaptable temperament and the ideal candidate must have a can-do attitude and be able to adjust strategies on the fly. Advanced boating skills required. Must be competent handling a 36. Nauset in ocean waters. Strong mechanical skills and carpentry skills are desirable. This position includes a $50,000/year salary, housing and all utilities, usage of island boat and mainland vehicle, vacation, and contribution toward health insurance. Please send resumes either by email to Nicole Miller at nicolemillermailbox@gmail.com or postal mail to Elfie Forbes, 692 Stevens Road, East Thetford VT 05043.
