Partner Opportunity Cloverleaf at Bridgeway Farms in Davis, CA


A partner opportunity is now available at the Cloverleaf at Bridgeway Farms. Currently, the Cloverleaf is a business partnership of four women running a four-acre, four year old stone-fruit orchard and one-acre vegetable field. We run a CSA mainly serving Davis, CA, a farm stand off of I-80 near Davis and some wholesale/restaurant markets. One of the goals at the Cloverleaf is to be a place where aspiring farmers can try out running a commercial farm without the burden of a big financial investment. This coming year, we're looking forward to helping some friends put in some hedgerows at the farm, as well as put in a perennial cover crop in the orchard to be more appropriate for organic management. We'd like to find a person with farm experience who is interesting in becoming an additional partner. If you are more interested in an apprenticeship or internship, we also have beginning positions available as well. If you are interested, please email thecloverleaffarm@gmail.com with questions and/or your resume and a short paragraph explaining your interest by Dec. 31sthttp://thecloverleaffarm.com/

Upcoming Events


Managing Risk on your Farm
Wednesday, December 12, 20121 - 4 PM
UCCE Placer/Nevada 11477 E Avenue, Auburn
This is an afternoon workshop meant to address farm liabilities and how you can plan for the unexpected on your farm or ranch. Adversity in your farming operation has many faces - water pipes burst, tractors break down, animals die unexpectedly, and trucks stop working...usually at the most inopportune moments. This workshop will help you assess and suggest strategies to manage your liabilities. By planning ahead and addressing these concerns before they arise, you will be better equipped to handle adversity on your farm or ranch.
The workshop is limited to 15 producers. To apply, please complete the online application form athttp://ucce.ucdavis.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=9527. If you have questions, please contact Cindy Fake,cefake@ucanr.edu.
