The Mendocino Grain Project is a little business with a big vision that begin in 2009. We believe that producing grain and other staple crops locally can allow us to make ecologically appropriate farming choices, provide food security for our region, and support the local economy.
We also believe that when compared with commercial white flour, freshly milled whole grain flour provides measurably better nutrition and health benefits to those who consume it. Working with The Mendocino Grain Project means being part of a dedicated, passionate team.
We are looking for a Field Coordinator/ Farmer to coordinate and execute:
Crop planning (organic wheat, rye, and rotation crops)
Organic fertility management
Equipment operation (Field cultivation, seeding, weed management, harvest)
General equipment care and maintenance (tractors, field equipment, combines)
Grain cleaning (post harvest processing at warehouse in North Ukiah)
This position is year-round and will coordinate and participate in 60+ acres of dry land grain production in Redwood Valley and Ukiah as well as 100+ acres of custom combine harvest in Lake, Mendocino, and Sonoma counties.
See "job description" above.
Relationship building: Maintain good relationships with landowners and the local farming community as well as seek and pursue new land-lease relationships as needed.
Developing training materials: Create written record of regular field tasks to support curriculum development for Grain School and the ongoing education of new grain farmers.
The ideal candidate will have one to multiple seasons of farming experience including experience with tractor and equipment operation. Organic farming experience is preferred.
