Job Description

The Farm Production Manager (FPM) is responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the Farm at VYCC, VYCC’s vegetable and poultry farm. The Farm at VYCC is the central life force of VYCC’s nationally recognized Health Care Share. Over the past ten growing seasons, we have proudly established an 8-acre, fully diversified vegetable and poultry farm in Vermont’s Champlain Valley with annual production of ~110,000 pounds of produce, 1,000 meat birds, a flock of laying hens, and a small number of cattle and pigs. Significant infrastructure – tractors, green and hoop houses, walk in coolers, a wash station, fencing – all support farm operations. The FPM will build upon this foundation, overseeing a thriving farm that offers meaningful employment and learning opportunities for youth, young adults, and hundreds of volunteers.
