Regenerative Farm Management in Steamboat Springs, Colorado 

beginning May 2024

Contact: Tim Rowse 970 819 8780 with a cover letter and resume. 

Company Summary: Feed Your Street is an Urban Farm model based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.   Feed Your Street develops Urban Farms.  We create a pathway to farm ownership for anyone who wants it.  Our systematized growing model and deep understanding of USDA, NRCS and FSA financing programs makes farm ownership possible for just about anyone with a passion for growing.   You can learn more at  

 As the founder of the Feed Your Street system, I’ve been hands on with growing and proving out the model for the first couple years of production.   I plan to cut back to 3-4 hours per day or less and as needed/wanted to focus on other aspects of the business.   I need someone to take over the day to day operations of the farm.  

Farm Summary: Locally we operate as Buffalo Pass Farm.  Our flagship farm consists of two indoor growing facilities allowing for year round production even at 7000’.   We also grow on 5000 square feet of outdoor growing space under plastic (greenhouses and caterpillar houses).  This job description and opportunity entails the day to day running of the farm while potentially creating and understanding a pathway to farm ownership for yourself.  The farm is designed to be run by 1 to 1.5 people.  And, we never, ever, apply chemical based fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides. 

We run a 120 person CSA with shares ranging in price from $25/week for full shares to $15/week for half shares.   We also have a small number of lamb and honey shares.  Produce will be available to you weekly.  The amount just depends on our harvest for the week but we give ourselves priority. 

Job period: Early May start, some flexibility.  The job can be year round if that’s what you want, or take a few months off in the winter and take a ski town job.   I’m open to accommodating the right applicant.

Job Requirements: 

  • Full Time, flexible hours.  
  • Some understanding and experience with market gardening is a huge plus and I’m willing to train on my system.   
  • Ability to lift 60 pounds and operate farm machinery (BCS tractor being the most demanding)
  • Some construction experience is a plus but not mandatory as we may be building two 30’x72’ hoophouses this season.   I’m still waiting to hear from the NRCS on EQIP funding (the program that funds hoophouses).  
  • Strong organizational and crop tracking skills
  • Basic office software skills.  Docs, spreadsheets, etc. 
  • Most importantly, a strong work ethic, drive, and passion for growing food and feeding the community. 

Weekly Schedule: Clearly other jobs, like checking on the sheep daily and rotating their pasture, will present themselves in the everyday operations of a farm, but here is a general outline: 

  • Monday: Clear and prep beds, transplant starts with paperpot transplanter (by hand inside), irrigate indoor grow
  • Tuesday: Finish planting, irrigating
  • Wednesday: Harvest Day. Harvest, wash/pack
  • Thursday: Prep CSA pickup 3pm-6pm, compost tea on indoor and outdoor grow
  • Friday, other farm tasks, building compost, weeding, etc. 
  • Saturday/Sunday – lift and lower plastic if I’m not around


Housing: The biggest challenge to living in Steamboat is the cost of housing.   The job starts at $22 per hour depending on experience with a one month review of performance.  Living here 20 years I know several people in the community that rent rooms in their homes for about $900/month with all utilities included and flexible leases.   I will do my best to help you get settled.  

Educational Opportunities: No credit per se, but happy to train you on our system and explore how you might have your own small farm.

Meals: No, but you do get veggies:-)

Stipend: Yes, it's a paid position @ $22/hr

Housing: No, but I can help find suitable housing
