Position Description
We are looking for a wonderful grassfarming enthusiast to join our dairy team.
We: Are small team family dairy - an old farm trying out some new tricks to keep up with changing climate, ecosystem, and food system needs. The farm is currently run by Sarah Chase with the support of her wife Jordan {who works as a nutritionist off the farm}, the amazing pasture engineer Amanda Henderson and a truly incredible crew of part-time assistance with milking, hay making, bottle washing, earth-moving, farm store managing and more! This will be Sarah’s sixth season managing the farm and her third as 100% grassfed and certified organic. She is the milk production behind her brother Rory’s line of Chaseholm Farm Creamery cheeses sold from the farm, at farmers markets and perhaps at a store near you. You can read more about the farm on our website here. Suffice to say - we are passionate about the potential of responsively managed grazing ruminants to enhance the health of our soils, farm systems, human food supply and community relationships. No way, you too?!
You: Have a couple of farm seasons under your belt and are no stranger to working longish seasonal days in all weather, lifting unwieldy things, walking fields or driving trucks and organizing your time efficiently. Ideally you even have experience driving tractors, managing large animals and running a fence line or a hundred ;) You love cows and/or holistic planned grazing or both! You are curious about all that is possible when you manage a farm like a grassland ecosystem and you are down to be part of the sometimes gritty process of figuring this all out. You love the Hudson Valley as your beautiful current or future home!
We: Can offer an hourly rate that begins at $12 based on experience, $100 a month of food from our farmstore and unlimited sweet sweet milk! We strive for a collaborative and communicative work environment and require at least a one year commitment to begin.
