    Hi I have 3 mobile chicken coops they are 28' long 8' wide and 8' tall.
    They are equipped for 500 birds in each house. Includes enough perching, laying boxes, and lighting. They each have 2 hen lights that produce solar lighting to the chickens so they have a total of 16 hours of light all year round. They have doors on the outside so it is easy to collect without going into the houses. These specs for 500 birds will pass for certified humane.
    Call or text (707)303-6548 for more info! Thank you!

  • 09/24/15--13:51: Farm Manager, Say Hay Farms
  • Say Hay Farms produces certified organic pastured eggs and mixed vegetables on 50 acres in Esparto, at the mouth of the beautiful Capay Valley in Northern California. In our sixth year of production, we are now seeking a professional farmer to manage our vegetable operation.
    Job Title: Farm Manager
    Works directly with Owner.
    DUTIES
    1) Directs and supervises all farm employee activities, such as planting, irrigation, cultivation, tractor work, harvest, post harvest, shipping and storage. Responsible for scheduling.
    2) Manages all aspects of crop production and field operations, including irrigation scheduling, timely cultivation, harvest forecasting, pest control, post harvest handling, and quality control.
    3) Creates crop plan and field allocations in coordination with the Owner.
    4) Records information about production, irrigation, labor activity, and food safety.
    5) Researches and implements procedural or equipment changes for greater efficiency, productivity, and quality.
    6) Inspects equipment to ensure proper functioning. Monitors safety of farm employees in the field and packing shed.
    7) Monitors inventory and orders supplies.
    QUALIFICATIONS
    1) Minimum 3 years experience on a diversified vegetable operation.
    2) Prior supervisory responsibility and demonstrated leadership abilities.
    3) Demonstrated knowledge of high quality year-round vegetable production.
    4) Proficient at data collection and spreadsheet analysis.
    5) Desire and ambition to be the key player at the center of a small professional and creative farming operation.
    6) Ability to work early, long, and hard. Weeks averaging 60 hours. This is a small farm so the Farm Manager performs most of the same duties s/he also supervises, including harvest.
    COMPENSATION
    Starting annual salary $45,000.
    Bonus incentive based on farm profitability.
    Two weeks paid vacation.
    Starting Time Frame: Flexible. Full-time before March 2016, but planning meetings in early November will be necessary.
    BACKGROUND
    Say Hay Farms started in 2010 with just two acres and 100 hens. Having farmed 20 acres for the past few years, we are completing the transition to our new packing facility and infrastructure in Esparto, CA. We farm two properties totaling about 45 acres of vegetable ground, 5 acres of almonds in need of rehabilitation, and a half-acre of oranges. With the time needed to properly rotate and fertilize our grounds with chickens and cover crops, we usually don’t have more than 15-20 acres in vegetable production at a time.
    Our goal is to meet much of our fertilization needs through pastured hens and cover crops, supplemented with compost and imported manure fertilizer when necessary. Our current laying flocks total 1600 laying hens, with plans for additional flocks. The Farm Manager’s focus will be on vegetable production, working with the Owner to allocate farm employees’ time to operate the daily routine of the egg operation.
    Having grown for a small 60-member CSA, restaurants, farmers’ markets, independent grocers, co-ops, and wholesale distributors, we are currently on a trajectory towards focusing on the latter.
    Our farm business strategy is to have the equipment and systems necessary to operate efficiently with a small team, the data to make informed planning decisions, and the skill and attention to detail needed to execute those plans successfully.
    We are a young evolving farm and looking for the right person to help support our growth.
    TIME FRAME
    Interviewing now.
    Start Date flexible depending upon candidate’s current position. Full-time no later than March 2016, but planning meetings in early November will be necessary.
    TO APPLY
    Please email a brief cover letter, resume, and references to sayhayfarms@gmail.com with the subject title “Farm Manager.”

    Woodleaf Farm is 26 acres in 4 separate parcels in the Sierra foothills of northern California at 1300 feet, outside of Oroville, between Chico and Grass Valley. It has a thriving commercial fruit production business and can also be a get-away for folks who want to be food and energy self-sufficient.
    Nestled in among mature oak and pine forest, there are 8 acres of rich soil devoted to fruit and vegetable production: 4.5 acres of peaches, 1.5 acres of pears, 1 acre of apples, ½ acre of cherries, ¼ acre of plums and pluots, and a ½ acre of vegetables, persimmons, figs, citrus, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and kiwis. There is also a small outdoor mushroom production area inside a timber bamboo forest.
    The farm has been certified organic by CCOF since 1982 and has 6 established weekly farmer’s markets in the Bay area (Berkeley, San Francisco, Marin, and Sebastopol) and 1 market in Chico. All 7 markets have clients who have been loyal customers for more than 20 years. We market the end of May through the end of October. The past two years (2014 and 2015) have been Woodleaf’s most profitable years to date. The orchard is pruned and ready for another possible record sales year.
    One of the secrets of Woodleaf’s commercial success is plentiful water for irrigation; it comes from a small lake 1 mile above the farm and is gravity flow with a sand-filter system flowing to 8 acres of underground sprinklers (1600 sprinklers total). Water has never been a problem on this farm.
    The farm is 100 % self-sufficient for electricity, with a 7.8 KW system and 52 solar panels. Thirty-six of the panels move to follow the sun for maximum electricity production.
    Another secret of Woodleaf’s success and its tasty fruit is excellent soil health. Soil organic matter levels now average between 4 and 6 % and all mineral nutrients have been carefully balanced.
    The entire farm is surrounded by an 8 foot woven wire fence to exclude deer.
    Designed into the main 10 acre parcel there are 4 fields with 900 peach, pear, apple, cherry, and plum trees (approximately 3 acres of commercial production). There is also a farmhouse, packing shed/shop, storage buildings, offices, greenhouses, and a domestic well.
    The spacious, open design 1,800 square foot farm house has lots of windows to bring the quiet forest and gracious landscaping outside indoors. The house has a gourmet kitchen and attached dining area, large master bedroom with private bath, a sunken living room filled with light, and an office or entertainment center area. There is also a large deck and an attached laundry room.
    The large packing shed has two walk-in coolers (one holds 1200 boxes, the other holds 300 boxes). Attached to the packing shed is a shop and lots of storage area. Above the packing shed/shop is a large office area, library, and conference room. The total square footage of this central building is 3300 square feet.
    Another metal-sided 1100 square foot building provides more storage for supplies and equipment.
    There are two small 120 square foot greenhouses for extending the growing season and raising transplants for the 3 trellis vegetable garden areas that have made Woodleaf well-known not just for premium quality fruit, but also for tasty and beautiful vegetables.
    Hidden down by the seasonal creek amongst large, specimen-quality 200 year old oak trees, there is another 700 square foot office or art/yoga studio with windows on 3 of the 4 walls and wrap around deck on the south side.
    On a contiguous 2.9 acre parcel, there is second 18 gallon per minute well and 400 peach trees.
    On a third contiguous 2.0 acre parcel, there is a PG&E electric service, a recently installed 3-bedroom rated septic system, and a building site plus 200 peach, pear, and apple trees.
    On the fourth contiguous 10 acre parcel, there is a third 10 gallon per minute well, an 1800 square foot shop for woodworking or other craftsman activities, and 300 peach trees.
    The farm can be purchased in one 10.67 acre parcel with the farmhouse and main buildings for $595,000, or with 1 or more of the other three parcels added. Price depends on which parcels are purchased.
    2.9 acre $80,000
    2 acre $80,000
    10 acre $160,000
