Farm Manager at Maple Rock

Farm Manager at Maple Rock Farm, paid position
Maple Rock Gardens is a unique gem located in Newcastle, California. The 30 acre ranch is open to the public only a couple times per year for tours of the 4 acres of botanical gardens. Every other day of the year, Maple Rock provides produce for High Hand Cafe, which is just 8 miles from the farm. The farm is currently in 4 acres of cover crop as we search for a Farm Manager to take over the operation.
We are looking for someone who is driven, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We have 15 acres of usable land, 10" of summer water and 2" of winter water, access to free manure, two tractors, disc, tiller and many other implements. There is room for new ideas and expansion.
You will work directly with the owner of both Maple Rock and High Hand to grow vegetables for the restaurant. Other opportunities include a farm stand in the High Hand Fruit Sheds and on-farm events, dinners and festivals.
