Farm Co-Op Opening up... (Mendocino)

compensation: based on arrangements
employment type: employee's choice
job title: farm co-op
Greetings to those of Interest,

I have several properties that I am farming currently and have decided the next step here is to open up my concept to a few interested parties. What better medium to use than Craigslist! If one takes a minute to see how Craig has been such a massive part of our lives over the last 20 plus years it's pretty amazing... so, many thanks to Craig and his list!!

I'm looking for a few folks who truly believe food is medicine and "you are what you eat'. I'm a 4th generation farmer here in California and also an accomplished farm to table Chef who has worked all 3 coasts throughout my culinary travels. So, it is with great honor I get to grow some of the cleanest, tastiest and most beautiful food available here in Northern California. I also do off and on grid pop-ups where I also get to cook the food I grow for the people who are interested in the good food movement.. this is currently how I'm paying for this operation. So, if you have culinary/catering skills please move to the front of the line!

My operation has grown over the years and so it's time to reach out. I'm looking for folks who can offer the skills it takes to run a sustainable co-op. Folks who know farming yes, but not necessary, those who know business, marketing, internet, etc etc. This operation will come to fruition only by effort and participation from a tight circle of folks who truly believe in good clean food. Many hands make lite work.

There is possible, minimal accommodations on the properties. Very rural accommodations, however, we do it and it gets done. Right now I really need help weeding, transplanting and watering at the Mendocino property, which will turn into harvest work and farmers market sales. I can offer a very large well made tent there with outhouse and outdoor shower that does have on-demand hot water! This is the first position I need to fill. There is NO pay upfront, however, as you work and help sell the produce you will be getting a percentage of the income. How much you work is how much you make -all fair market. Depending on the arrangement will determine the percentage. Very ideal arrangement for folks with other irons in the fire.

If you wish to know more about how you can be involved with this operation please feel free to reach out and tell me a bit about yourself and your motivation and what skills you can bring to the table. If you have interest in simply volunteering for experience and good food, please reachl. If you have a shit-ton of money and wish to share... please reach out.

Looking Forward!

MFIII
