BD or Organic Grower for 2009 season, Mahwah, NJ

Sun Valley Farm CSA is entering its third season in Mahwah, NJ in Northern Bergen County. Located on the banks of the Ramapo River, the farm is in the heart of the beautiful Ramapo Valley, forty minutes outside NYC and 20 minutes from the Pfeiffer Center. Our CSA is a charitable and educational organization working directly with Ramapo College of NJ, providing internships and a physical classroom to students in their Environmental Studies Program. Our farmer will have the support of college students, shareholder volunteers, and a farm manager who runs the organization, as well as interns. While not certified organic, we are chemical free and sustainable and signers to the NOFA Farmer’s Pledge. We are looking for a farmer for the 2009 growing season who is experienced with organic or biodynamic methods, growing diverse vegetable crops (we grow over 30 types and many more varieties). The CSA is also home to 13 thriving bee colonies as an added opportunity to learn and enjoy. Housing will be worked out on a case basis. Please contact Jack Daly, 917-796-8759 or sunvalleyfarmcsa@hotmail.com for an application.
