Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: ABOUT OUR FARM Flying Coyote Farm is a 37-acre certified organic and biodynamic farm nestled in the foothills of Mt. Hood in Sandy, Ore. Established in 2013 we grow 8-acres of vegetables using a mix of mechanized and bio-intensive growing practices and manage the rest of our acreage through rotational grazing and cover crop rotations. Our primary outlets for our produce are through our 220 member CSA program, year round farmer’s market, and local restaurants and groceries. We also have an extensive livestock program where we raise pigs, lamb and chickens for meat. Each year we raise 1650 broiler chickens, 15-20 pigs and 20-30 sheep all on pasture. We farm year round, rain, sun or snow and enjoy the hustle and hard work of growing food for our community. Our employees are truly what make the farm run, and although farming is incredibly mentally and physically demanding we value creating a safe and enjoyable work environment for our farm crew and nurturing folks’ skills and interests while on the farm. Our crew consists of Lili Tova (farm manager), Dan Sullivan (farm manager), Piper Krabbenhoft (Farm Crew Manager), Stephen Lewis (Livestock Manager), as well as 4-7 other full time and part time crew members depending on the time of year.
