Position Description

The mission of Husky Meadows Farm is to cultivate connections between land, food, and community through direct engagement and experiences. We are a dynamic company interweaving food production, education and hospitality. 

Husky Meadows cultivates a vibrant, diverse farm-scape using regenerative farming practices. We support a dynamic local food system through cooperation with neighboring producers.

Using our fresh produce, the kitchen inspires a creative line of artisanal prepared and shelf stable foods. Our kitchen also serves as a food lab experimenting with new produce varieties and recipes. Our hospitality and educational programing offers unique, immersive hands-on learning experiences for foodies, aspiring farmers and culinary professionals.

We operate a 2 acre certified organic market garden with an orchard and apiary. We are in the process of completing our commercial kitchen for prepared foods made with our produce. We grow for our CSA, farm stand, wholesale accounts, and our prepared foods. 

As a certified organic farm we are committed to sustainable agricultural practices. We use a walk behind tractor for minimal tillage and field work is highly physical.
