The historic Henry H. Uhrich Farm includes 120 acres of mixed topography on the eastern border of Larimer County, CO near the town of Johnstown. The 120 acres includes approximately 60 acres of tillable land and 60 acres of mixed pasture, wetlands, bluffs with some extraordinary views of the front range and beautiful frontage along the Big Thompson River. The land has been farmed biodynamically and/or organically for the last 25 years with good soil fertility. Crops grown include rye, barley, corn, alfalfa, hemp and vegetables. The farm also has a small flock of sheep.

The farm is managed by Dana Burns, the farm owner, together with a farm team consisting of offsite, paid help and volunteers. Uhrich Farm is also home to the Cresset Center, which carries out educational events and activities on the farm . The Farmhand and Caretaker will live on the farm, be an active member of the Farm Team, and assist in all the activities associated with caring for the farm, buildings, and equipment. We are seeking a mature, responsible, non-smoking individual who has some farming experience, is comfortable working hard, and enjoys being part of a team.
