Member Work Barter Program


The Member Work Barter Program is an opportunity for an individual to learn about free range poultry farming by helping out on the farm. In exchange for this person's labor and help, the Co-op membership fee is waived and the person is paid a salary in Co-op food products. The Work Barter Program is aimed at education with the long term goal of having the individual become an independent producer for the Co-op. Alternatively, it could be an opportunity for a person in an urban setting to connect with the traditional rural lifestyle and understand first hand where their food comes from.

Work duties will involve all aspects of free range poultry care and management, as well as a variety of other farm chores, including livestock care, greenhouse work and even some tractoring. Previous farm experience is not a requirement.

Only one position is available for this season. Potential candidates must be mature, responsible, honest, physically fit and good with animals. This is part time position and we can accommodate flexible work hours.

Please contact us for more information and to schedule an interview.
