Job Description: 

Undertoe Farm is a community supported organic vegetable farm in beautiful northern Michigan. We believe in revitalizing the agroecosystem by enhancing the soil health "under our toes" while providing the local community with seasonal, nutritious vegetables and fruit. By managing our land thoughtfully, we aim to increase the diversity of native plants, amphibians, birds, and insects that roam. In the process, we hope to live a fulfilling, happy life (so far so good). One where we find balance between working our butts off for a way of life we love and making time to get lost in our favorite forests and musical tunes.
