Job Title: 
Caretaker & Market Gardener
Be Kind Farm
30670 Turner Road
Fort Bragg, CA 95437
Job Description: 

Be Kind Farm is looking for one or two market gardener / caretakers to nurture award winning heirloom tomatoes and raised bed crops, in addition to surrounding native bees, hummingbirds, ravens and our two beloved husky dog guardians - Pandora and Lobo. We are a 2.8 acre farm located 3 miles from the pristine Mendocino County coastline, abundant with wildlife including two ponds and home to a large barn known as The Peace Barn, which is being refurbished and dedicated to “World Peace”. The property is fully fenced for “escape artist dogs”. We sell to local upscale restaurants and BnB inns. You can pocket at least 50% of the income derived from the cash generated by your harvests in addition to entrepreneurial ideas you may want to bring for yourself and the betterment of the farm. You may live on the farm in your own Tumbleweed Home, or for $300 per month in our very cozy upgraded RV adjacent the gardens, with access to a separate bathroom, shower and other facilities in the farmhouse. In any event you must pay for your own utilities (propane, firewood and electricity).

Duties & Responsibilities: 

Work together with the owner, a retired travel author, business operator and visionary to return the farm to a lush “garden of eden”. Must have good management skills and be focused on success. A conscious mind that thinks out of the box is a plus. For example we have a Fairy Ring on the property and although we are very grounded in a sound business model - we recognize and honor the sacredness of the plant, animal and native American spirits on the land.

Education & Experience: 

Organic farming or permaculture skills are desired and a far side sense of humor is a plus. You have a reliable farm type vehicle, a good credit score, and understand farm budgeting and bookkeeping. You are self motivated go getter(s) with good intuition. Be Kind Farm is a sanctuary geared to honoring life and restoring nature’s perfect balance. No alcohol, drugs, or smoking of any kind are allowed. You must be physically fit and mentally stable.
