Hidden Creek Farm is an Organic and Humane Certified regenerative farm located in Delaplane, VA, roughly 1 hour from DC. Our mission is to create a regenerative science-based diversified farm. Our soils, our people, and our livestock are our most important assets. We operate a ‘closed-loop’ system where all parts of the farm are interconnected in complementary processes. We provide exceptionally high-quality breeding stock, produce, and value-add products to customers, along with innovative learning and farm-stay opportunities through our workshops and Airbnb rentals.

Hidden Creek Farm is looking to hire a proactive individual with at least some prior experience in Market Gardening and/or Produce Packing and general inventory tracking. Your ability to keep these processes organized, and to efficiently move products from the field to customers, is critical to the success of our operation. Since the farm is an agile ‘mature early-stage’ business, opportunities and strategies will adapt over time to our markets. Flexibility, and an ability to adjust to do whatever the farm needs in the moment, are a key part of the job.
