Based on the Big Wood River at the foot of Lookout Mountain, Lookout Farm is entering its third year of operation, cultivating three acres of vegetables and transitioning three more. Over the next five years cultivation will continue to expand, serving CSA customers, restaurant clients, and farmers’ markets throughout south-central Idaho.
In addition to annual cropland, the farm consists of animal pastures, a planned orchard, and river bench ecosystem. Just 20 minutes from Ketchum, the Sun Valley ski resort, and vast networks of wilderness trails and streams, Lookout Farm’s mission is to gather the Wood River Valley around an agricultural ecoystem that innovates food sustainability in the region.
The Harvest/Markets Assistant will help execute all harvest and market preparation operations during the 2021 farming season. The H/M Assistant will work directly with the Farm Manager and Assistant Farm Manager in all aspects of harvest coordination, from weekly planning to daily harvests, including all crop types. The H/M Assistant will also assist in washing and packing operations, helping get food out the door to Farmers’ Markets, our CSA customers, and wholesale partners. Regular participation in general field operations is also expected.
