Position Title
Assistant Livestock Manager
Position Description
Laughing Earth is a diversified small farm in Brunswick, NY whose mission is to feed the bellies and minds of our local community, both raising food in an ecologically-minded way and teaching our farm members and consumers about the true costs and benefits of food production. On our 175-acre conserved farm, we raise vegetables for a 120-family Farm Share program, grow cut flowers to sell at our local farmers’ market, as well as rotationally pasture a variety of livestock to sell the meat and eggs both on the farm and at the local farmers’ market.
Laughing Earth is seeking an Assistant Livestock Manager for the 2020 season, April through November. The ideal candidate would possess at least one season of experience with a small-to-mid-scale pasture-based livestock operation, a strong attention to detail, and an ability to learn on their feet. The Assistant Livestock Manager’s duties would consist of seasonal and weekly planning, as well as planning and execution of pasture rotations for meat chickens, egg chickens, pigs, cattle, turkeys, and sheep. The daily feeding, watering, and maintenance of these animal populations would fall in their purview, as well as assisting with the poultry slaughter, inventory of meat products, and sales at the farmers’ market.
