About Sorrel River Ranch and Farmer D Consulting
Sorrel River Ranch is an exclusive 240-acre riverside oasis surrounded by the spectacular scenery of Utah’s iconic arches, canyonlands, and red rock mesas. Southeastern Utah’s premiere ranch resort elevates the guest experience by offering unparalleled services and customized experiences with authentic western hospitality, local knowledge, gourmet farm meals, and a genuine commitment for responsible land stewardship. The Ranch is framed by the Colorado River, 17 miles outside of Moab, Utah, the Adventure Capital of the West and the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Farmer D Consulting was recently engaged to help further the vision for the farm and assist with hiring a Farm Manager to participate in and lead the effort to implement this evolving vision. The redesign of the farm and its programs will position the farm as a centerpiece of the property and enhance the dining, programming and culture of the place. As part of the reimagining of the farm it would be great to move towards being a more closed loop Biodynamic farm that both provides high quality food and educational experiences for guests, staff and visitors. As part of moving in this direction, there is interest in adding a small cattle component focused on dairy, beef and compost.
Sorrel River Ranch is seeking an experienced Farm Manager to oversee all areas of existing farm operations and lead the farm into its next iteration. You will be part of implementing the vision to elevate the agricultural experience. The primary goals for the farm operation are to produce high quality ingredients, provide engaging experiences for guests and staff and be as financially self-sufficient as possible. The Ranch aims for seamless integration with the guest experience, farm to table cuisine, and new retail market - JJ’s General Store. The current farm footprint includes approximately 70 acres of irrigated pasture land, currently used for horses, and roughly 1.5 acre organic kitchen garden and small greenhouse.
