add to favorites Farm Manager Management Taos, NM 87571
The Neem Karoli Baba Ashram is currently seeking a Farm Manager to carry our

developing 5 acre permaculture farm into a new level of productiveness and

organization. The farm is completing its 5th

presence by furthering the many permaculture and production goals. The farm

offers two exsisting greenhouses, an 800 sq ft, unheated high tunnel which has

been cultivated in both summer and winter along with a smaller 480 sq ft heated

greenhouse mostly used for starts. We have a Ford 500 45 hp tractor with tiller and

reciprocating mower. There is budget to locate and purchase other implements,

most needed being a brush hog. The farm has been irrigated both by drip irrigation

and through flood irrigation from the local acequia (traditional irrigation ditch

created by the Spanish). We are in process with the NRCS to build a 3000 sq ft

acequia/roof catchment fed pond with set sprinkler irrigation. This project will

begin construction in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014.

We have been intensively cultivating around an acre of annual vegetable crops

as well as maintaining an orchard, cut flower garden and medicinal herb garden.

Oversight and furthering of all exsisting elements as well as identification and

implementation of larger perennial cash crops are the bulk of this job. Marketing

and interface with the ashram and broader community outlets make up the rest.

Taos is a forward thinking community with a large farmers market and many

restaurants committed to supporting local agriculture. Santa Fe, Los Alamos and

Albuquerque offer other, yet unsought, markets.

We seek a committed, experienced, inspired and energetic individual to carry these

tasks forward with organization, planning, accountability and oversight. We offer

room and board as well as a salary and incentives to be negotiated. Please send a

cover letter, resume and references to…
