Organic Grower Wanted

Unique opportunity for seasoned organic grower, on large, idyllic farm estate in
Long Valley, NJ

The Farm:
A National Historic Landmark, this preserved farm covers the floor of a verdant
alluvial valley consisting of prime soils. The farm is situated 1 hour from NYC
in one of the nation's most affluent counties, where demand for locally grown
organic produce/CSA far outstrips supply.
The grower's challenge:
To eventually provide a year-round, complete plant-based diet for a medical
doctor's projected 250 patients, in lieu of the standard drug-based medicine

You will be in charge of all farm operations and the returning 30 of the 170
acres of conventionally-farmed, excellent  soil to organic.
On this you will grow vegetables, grains, fruits, flowers and herbs.

The 2012 season will be devoted to infrastructure (fencing, irrigation and barn
repairs), soil improvement, and perennial plantings.

In 2013 we hope to provide much of the diet for 100 patients.

This might be the first HMO/ CSA in the USA !

We're looking for a grower with
-        Extensive vegetable-growing experience
-        Some experience with grains and small fruits
-        Basic construction skills
-        Good management competence
-        Boundless energy, and a
-        Commitment to a plant-based diet

   If you are interested, please contact me.

   Thank you,

   Ron Weiss, M.D.
