Farmer Job at Organic Farm and Community in Windsor, California
Golden Nectar Farm is a handcrafted, organic farm and, warm, intentional micro-community. We reside on 2.5 acres just outside of Windsor in Sonoma County, California, 60 miles north of San Francisco. We are primarily a fruit farm (tree, vine and bush fruit) and also cultivate vegetables and mushrooms. We raise chickens and ducks. In addition, we have PV solar panels, cobb and strawbale buildings, plans for an aquaponics system and an ever-evolving intentional community process. There is room to expand into greater annual vegetable or flower production.
We are seeking experienced farmer(s) or a farming couple to join us and to take over the management and operations of the farm. Because there are over 150 varieties of fruit crops on the farm, the learning curve can be steep. For this reason, we are looking for a minimum commitment of two years. Most farm plantings are mature and markets are already established. We are available to mentor the right people to help ensure your success.
We are seeking farmers with 2-3 years of fruit growing experience, who are responsible, self-motivated and comfortable working independently yet who are also open to suggestions and collaboration. There would be options to live on or off farm, arrange a crop share or land lease.
We are also looking for short-term farm support in the interim.
