Permaculture Farm seeking Farmer

Ashfield, Massachusetts

We are searching for 4 individuals with an interest in collaborative homesteading and developing their own earth based regenerative businesses. The opportunity comes with the option of some consistent professional mentoring. Home/Landowner is offering a farming/permaculture business mentoring situation on a 6 acre homestead in Ashfield, MA USA.   Cost for the on-site residential option is $450/month but you keep all that you earn from your business to help offset this cost.

Applications are due Nov 15, 2015. Send brief letter of interest stating why you are interested along with your resume to mejinwesternmass@gmail.com.  There are 4 residential positions available, and participants will live together in a communal household and manage the 6 acres while working on developing their own permaculture/farm business with assistance from the landowner and the other participants.  Non-residential participation is also possible.

The optional coaching can include business plan development, Holistic Management’TM, advanced topics in permaculture, marketing and hosting an onsite Permaculture Design Certificate course, as well as PDC teaching experience.

We are searching especially for someone with a passion for regenerative livestock rearing and beekeeping (we are getting a Flowhive-TM in Nov.), someone who has experience and interest in culinary arts/value added products and medicinal plants, someone with gifts in marketing, farm based tourism and education. Also open to other innovative creative entrepreneurs with other interests.

People from diverse backgrounds and traditionally under represented groups highly welcomed.
