We Are Looking for a Farm Manager

Cherry Grove Farm is seeking a farm manager. The farm is located in the historic district of Lawrenceville, New Jersey. We produce and market fine artisanal cheeses, grass-fed meats, and other farm products. The owners are committed to the principles of sustainability, environmental conservation, community engagement and excellence in our products.

The farm is uniquely situated on a heavily travelled state highway in the heart of the Philadelphia – New York Corridor, where many retail stores, restaurants and families value high-quality products from local sources. Established points of sale include an on-farm store, seasonal farm markets, year-round wholesale to restaurants and retail markets, and a growing web-based presence.

The Manager (or, couple) will be in charge of all aspects of farm management from production to marketing. He or she will be a person with demonstrated supervisory and management experience; a friendly, outgoing and inclusive manner; and creative passion for the production and marketing of local agricultural products. Appropriate backgrounds may include sustainable agricultural production, Animal husbandry, experience in food sales or distribution, or some combination of these qualifications.
