Kendal Hills Farm is 70 acres of rolling hills, forest, orchard and pasture. Dave & Emily are starting their third season of reviving the farm that Emily grew up on. We raise mushrooms, eggs, chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, partridge, pigeons and pork and also operate a dog boarding kennel. It’s beautiful chaos and we’re looking for someone to join our team.
While we’d love to describe a usual day, there’s really no such thing on our farm. Every day there are dogs to look after, animals to feed and mushrooms to harvest but after that it could be foraging in the woods, trips to the butcher, preparing for market, deliveries and market sales, giving tours, building and maintaining fences and shelters, cleaning equipment, or any one of hundreds of other farm projects and chores.
These six things describe the qualities we’re looking for and why they’re important to us.
Hours of Work
Daily hours and schedules vary depending on the projects and tasks underway.
Approximately 35-40 hours/week with at least 4 days off in every 14 day period.
We’re looking for someone to become a full-time trusted member of our team from May 1st to October 31st, with the possibility of extending throughout the year.
