Title: Farm Manager

Compensation: Position details This is a 40-hour per week, full time position with paid vacation, sick time, and holidays. Full medical, dental, and vision benefits provided. Salary range $62-72K annually, commensurate with experience.

Position Overview The farm is the vehicle through which all our high-impact programming takes place. The Farm Manager ensures all aspects of the farm are maintained and thriving, while also being well integrated for programmatic use. This position is responsible for planning, managing, and implementing all aspects of FoodWhat’s crop production on what is currently a 1-acre diversified farm operation including vegetables and flowers. (Note: FoodWhat has the intention to grow our cultivated land to 2-10 acres and add an orchard in the upcoming years.) The farm provides the space where youth engage in job training and empowerment activities through organic farming, as well as produces approximately 5,000 pounds of fresh, nourishing produce. This produce goes to feed the youth crew through daily/weekly meals cooked on site, supports our CSA program for each youth and their family throughout the summer and fall, provides pumpkins and other needs for large events and farm-based businesses like our holiday pies, and goes toward our weekly food justice farm stand for 20+ weeks.
