Big Mesa Farm has been in operation for 8 years with its inception in Bolinas, Ca. The farm has relocated to Comptche Ca in Mendocino county and is now entering the second season on new ground. We are farming 4 acres this year including 5 greenhouses. Farm owner has over 15 yrs in organic row crop farming and is still inspired every year to try new things. Some of our growing edges are in streamlining systems for efficient production, the use of TEND software for crop planning, dry farming, teaching farming practices, and involving employees in these processes. This position is for someone who has a great passion for local food production and learning sustainable farm systems and who may dream of starting their own farm someday. Must have a solid work ethic. The position is full time (or more during the height of the season) and requires attention to detail and great ability for learning and self motivation. A very charming 1890's cabin is offered for housing, with access to communal kitchen and a gorgeous bathouse for a small rental fee. Compensation is hourly at 15/hr.
The farm is located one half hour from the coastal town of Mendocino in the small but tight community of Comptche, Ca. We are off grid, and 100% solar powered, and you must have access to your own transportation. Thank you for reading.
