CURRENT WORK OPPORTUNITIES
Currently taking applications for our 2016 Winter Residency
We’re looking for a sustainably motivated and passionate person to join Danny’s Farm. We currently attend 2 farmers’ markets a week and you would be involved in all aspects of the running a profitable mixed species farm on just 5 acres including:
- Polyface style rotational grazing with cattle and laying chickens
- Growing vegetables and fruit
- Baking and food prep for markets
- Running the market stall
- Farm financials
- Regulatory aspects
- Marketing and social media
The first 3 months would be a WWOOF style arrangement where you work for food and board and then a longer-term partnership position can be arranged. The ideal person would be interested in setting up their own market garden operation here on the farm. Whilst helping us over the Winter months you would be able to set up the beds, propagate seedlings, and start planting for Spring and Summer without the financial burden of food and board. When the operation starts producing vegetables we can transition to a longer term lease share arrangement.
We have two polytunnels, irrigation infrastructure, a rotary hoe, seed trays and all of the other basic equipment ready to go. We would be promoting your produce through our food trailer and have direct access to Organic Wholefoods in Melbourne. Check out our instagram @dannysfarm and the Danny’s Farm facebook page for some more of our pictures and projects, and if you’re interested send me an email at email@example.com for more information and the application form or give me a call on 0488 604 231.
Look forward to hearing from you!
