Carnation Farms (CF) presents a truly unique opportunity for a skilled and talented nonprofit CEO to marry an incredibly beautiful and historic 818 acre certified organic farm property with the creativity of a dedicated staff and Board of Directors to build a world class educational and experiential organization that will inspire individuals, families and communities to make informed choices about food and lifestyles. CF was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 2016 and brings the opportunities presented by a startup organization with the stability and foundation presented by an existing staff, physical plant and operating revenue.
The CEO of Carnation Farms will work hand in hand with the Board of Directors and the staff to further shape the vision, mission and programs that CF will carry into the future. CF programs will help build a healthier, brighter future for all involved. Active partnerships are being pursued with health organizations, school districts and other academic institutions to build complementary programs that support the vision and mission of CF.
CF has a program and farm staff of approximately thirty and a 2017 operating budget of $4.2 million. Revenue is a combination of contributions, grants, special events, conference rentals, agricultural products, camps and classes. The farm has extensive overnight facilities and meeting and teaching spaces available for programming.
The organization is currently governed by a volunteer board of five. The board is actively recruiting additional members to provide greater linkages into the community.
This is an incredible opportunity for a CEO who is passionate about building quality programs that will incorporate growth and development of the organization’s mission of teaching children and the community about healthy food and lifestyle choices.
A generous compensation and benefit package will be provided for the right candidate with the right skills, background and track record.
