Old Field Farm explores the interaction and mutual benefit of art and agricultural practices, where a diversified culture for both plants and animals can thrive. Old Field Farm/Art and Agriculture consists of 160 acres of forest, wild bee pastures, indigenous and cultivated mushrooms, habitat for goats, chickens, pigs, ducks; vegetable and fruit gardens. Integral to the farm is the greenhouse, ceramic studio and painting studio.
Our intention is to transition to having a thoughtful, full-time effort made towards every facet of the vegetable and livestock operation. We are looking for someone full-time who has ample experience (three years at the minimum) overseeing a diverse operation, a solid background in farm record keeping and budgeting, as well as managing farm interns and volunteers. In addition to the Farm Manager, there is a Market Manager who will be coordinating sales of product and our Bootleg Buying Club, held weekly in Manhattan.
