Job Description: 

Inglewood Farm in central Louisiana is seeking an experienced farmer to take leadership and/or ownership of our organic vegetable business on up to 30 acres of certified organic land. We are seeking an entrepreneurial farmer who understands regenerative farming practices and has a commitment to growing organic vegetables for our community and region.

Accompanying our vegetable acreage is a beautiful “Harvest Barn” where we currently conduct post-harvest operations. The building includes a washing station, walk-in cooler, storage rooms, kitchen and bathrooms as well as office space. We also have a 90’ x 30’ greenhouse and a hardening house for prepping transplants. A new field barn is located in the growing zones and has climate-controlled storage and a shop.

Current marketing opportunities include an on-site farmers market and two other weekly markets, wholesale sales and subscription sales. We will be happy to share with you our previous 5 years of operational and marketing information.

This is a great opportunity for a farmer looking for the right move into their own business without significant up-front costs.

Inglewood Farm has been owned by members of the Keller family since 1927. We want to support farmers who share our vision of producing good food for the community and taking good care of the soil for future generations. It is important to us that Inglewood be a welcoming place for all people.

In addition to the vegetable acreage, the Inglewood property includes:
• 1000 acres under lease for organic grains
• Pasture land with 100 red angus cows, managed by adaptive grazing
• A 1000-acre nature preserve
• 80 acres of organic pecan orchards
• A lovely historic district, shaded by giant live oak trees
