We are seeking a manager here at Misty Morning Farms in Deer Island, Oregon. Our farms are located an hour northwest of the city of Portland just a few miles south of the Columbia River. We have a Certified Naturally Grown certificate which is a type of organic distinction. Our farms are diverse, where we try our hand at sustainable regenerative farming practices. Our focus in livestock is mainly heritage breeds. For examples our cattle are Belted Galloway, our pigs are Old Spots, our sheep are Black Welsh Mountain, our rabbits are Silver Fox, etc. We grow our produce in raised beds which equal somewhere between 1 to 1.5 acres or in our greenhouse. We have berries, fruit, and even a few wine grapes.

A manager is required to live on the one of the properties. Comfortable housing is provided. One must have a current drivers license.

Someone who has a passion for farming or ranching would be a great fit here. We usually run a crew of 3 to 5 depending on season and work load. Experience managing others efficiently is needed. You will be expected to not only direct others, but to work with them on various projects. You will need good communication skills and are expected to meet with owner for a few minutes a day to discuss projects and goals. As you get acquainted with the farms, meetings will probably drop back to weekly discussions.

Tractor experience would be wonderful; we cut our own hay here. Pasture management expertise would be most welcome. And lastly, some computer and/or marketing skills would be extremely helpful.
