    I am wanting to retire from the flour milling business that I established 10 years ago. I have stable wholesale accounts with local stores, restaurants, and distributors. There are great opportunities for expansion for a younger person with initiative. The business currently requires about six days a month work and nets about half a family farm income so it would be a great fit with a farming operation. There is a strong local farm community in the area. Business includes accounts, milling and sifting equipment, grain inventory, and the cargo container housing it, if desired.

  • 07/07/17--15:16: Full-Time Farm Manager
  • Ranch and farm (one hour drive from Reno, Nevada) is looking for full-time Farm Manager for a unique opportunity growing an experimental crop utilizing organic methods. The experimental grow period is July through mid-October. Be part of a small team that includes a experienced senior farmer and other support staff.
     
    The farm manager duties include overseeing the installation and maintenance of an drip irrigation system, field preparation, soil composition/amendments, planting, ongoing crop monitoring and pest management, managing farm labor, crop harvest and drying, heavy equipment operation and light equipment repair. Organic methods and organic pest management experience required.
     
    Additional acreage not dedicated to the experimental crop also requires management (cattle, alfalfa, etc.) so an extension of the full-time position is possible based upon performance. The successful candidate can help expand current operations into other areas of expertise (e.g., crops and livestock). A positive attitude is a must! Candidate needs to be dependable, flexible, and hard-working. Summer hours are 5 or 6 days a week, 7 am to 5pm. Possible flexibility as to which days of the week to work.
     
    We ask for a 3.5 month commitment. This is limited period, full-time position at $3000 per month or higher per experience plus a harvest bonus based upon a profitable yield. Housing may be provided for the first month while getting settled. Requires own transportation. Prefer supervisory experience. Based upon performance and crop yield there is an ongoing opportunity to both manage future crop cycles (e.g., Feb-Nov) and continue managing other portions of the ranch.
     
    If interested please e-mail a resume or description of job experience that shows you are qualified to JeffreyHernandez@me.com. Short e-mails like "I'm interested in this job." will not result in a response. You must supply more information about yourself before I will send questions and an application.

    Perfect for the reclusive young farmer: Small homestead-based farm in the blue oak woodland of western Tehama County, about 4 hours N of San Francisco, 2.5 from Sacramento. Comes with all the seed, tools, gypsum, irrigation and spare fittings you'll need -- even a winter's worth of firewood and a half-used truckload of OMRI-certified compost! Clearly, I didn't expect to be leaving the farm this year. But I hope my family's medical crisis can have the silver lining of giving a new farmer a place to try his or her wings. Deer-fenced 3/4- acre CCOF-certified market garden, easily supports 20-share CSA year-round; 11x20' CCOF-certified greenhouse for nursery business. Solar-powered well with two large water storage tanks and automatic shutoff (no water costs!!). Well-established farmers' market presence in Redding, CA. Solar-powered yome with wood heat in winter and satellite internet so you can get things done. Plus, bonus cabin for hardy overnighters. Access to deep, year-round pond (summers are hot - you'll need it!). Isolation garden for seed savers. Not an ideal situation for serious livestock farmers, but you can have a couple goats, keep chickens if you want. Neighbors are decent folks. Many established perennials, including raspberries, plums, and countless medicinal herbs. Wildflowers, meteors, fungi and chorus frogs. You can forage, swim, even hunt and fish. $4000/year rent, high speed internet with wi-fi, and a nice insurance package (including product liability). You also get a landlady/previous farmer who will do all she can to help you succeed. (I only live about 60 miles away.) This land supported me for 12 years and was the best education I ever got. Family events force me to move on -- for now. I know there is someone out there who will relish the isolation, the hard work, and the biodiversity of this remote valley as much as I have. The cure for loneliness is solitude.
