We raise cattle and poultry on 40 acres in New Paltz, NY. Our raw milk, eggs, and meats are sold in our self-service farm store alongside many other products from nearby farms.

We are looking for workers who are ready to embrace the joys and challenges of farm work. Employees here have the opportunity to learn about the day-to-day workings and management of a for-profit diversified farm.

No prior experience is needed. We are looking for someone who is eager to learn, observant, an excellent communicator, and capable of intense physical labor.
