General Description:

Organic Farm Management Trainee

This is a non-traditional opportunity so we have a non-traditional recruitment process. If the position sounds like something in which you would be interested, please respond to the following questions. Take great care with your response. If we take you on, your response to these questions will be the cornerstone of your contract with us. If you tell us what you think we want to hear, you are setting yourself up for certain failure. Also, you haven’t a clue as to what we "want to hear".

1. What do you intend to do with the rest of your life?

2. WHY? (That's the key question)

3. Please describe the (functional) steps you perceive as fundamental to achieving your intentions.

Simply tell the truth and tell the truth simply. We are not looking for eloquence, just clarity of purpose. If we are in a position to facilitate your objectives, we will respond. If you are not yet absolutely clear what you are up to, please save us all a lot of time and heartache. This opportunity would not work out for you.

P.S. We would also love to peruse your resume.
