Farmer Committed to Regenerative Agriculture Wanted for Developing a Business at an Intentional Community

Whole Village Farm/Ecovillage is searching for an experienced, organic farmer who would collaborate with our community in maintaining and developing a permaculture designed, mixed farm that follows the principles of...

  • Organic food production for the internal and external communities
  • Carbon sequestration (we make and use biochar)
  • Preparation for climate uncertainties
  • Appropriate technology
  • Building healthy soil

Our 191 acres include hardwood maple and wetland forests; pastures; orchards; edible forests; grain, vegetable and hay fields; greenhouses; large barn and sheds; and a Victorian farmhouse. Over the past 15 years we have planted windbreaks, shelterbelts, wildlife corridors, and silvo-pastures. We are inspired by agroecology and welcome biodynamic agriculture.

We will negotiate a relationship that benefits both partners and the land, including possible building of equity after a trial period. The community intends to play a supportive role in developing your successful farm business. We can make an appointment for you to visit the farm, enjoy a meal with us, and discuss possibilities. We recognize the importance of a farmer/farm family having autonomy as well as their own living space, while working together with the community toward the goals of restoration and regeneration.
