seeking farm manager in middletown NY
Farm Manager – Middletown, NY Area
We are seeking a motivated individual with three to five years experience in vegetable/fruit production for a full time position re-establishing farmland outside of Middletown, NY. Experience planting, growing and harvesting hops is a plus. We anticipate starting with a one acre hop yard (adding an additional 5-10 acres in year 2), 10 acres for pumpkins and the like and 5 acres of corn for a corn maze. Greenhouse(s) will be constructed for other types of produce, flowers, etc. Responsibilities include all farming/growing requirements such as field planning, field management (tillage, fertility, seeding, cultivation, irrigation, and disease/pest control), equipment maintenance, harvesting, record keeping, etc. The land is currently undeveloped, so the candidate will play a major role in deciding what to grow and building/greenhouse requirements. Our goal is to have a fully functional farm, haunted house attractions and the potential for a brewery/brewpub. Inquiries can be emailed to [email protected].
