We are looking for someone to help with our 80 head dairy operation. The majority of the work would involve assisting our herd manager with the feeding, cleaning and care of our lovely Holstein cows. Our farm is also open to the public and houses a variety of other farm animals both for education/fun as well as meat and eggs. Work would include their care as well. We have a few hundred acres which we use to grow feed for the animals as well as pumpkins and strawberries for the general public and tours.
The ideal candidate would be hard-working, dedicated to sustainable farming, versatile and able to work efficiently and independently. It would also be beneficial to be easy-going and communicate well with visitors to the farm.
Preference will be given to those applicants with farm experience including animal handling and tractor work but we are willing to train a highly motivated person.
Salary is based on a 40 hour work week but the schedule is 10 days of work and then four days off for a total of $2280/month. A dollar/hour premium will be added after the first month. Ideally the candidate would be available to start work at the beginning of March and continue until the end of October. There will be the possibility of continuing full-time throughout the winter.
Arrangements can be made for room and board at the cost of $500 per month.
