    Lady Liberty Farm in Rensselaerville, NY

    Looking for a Winter Farm Assistant/Manager (potentially longer if the
    situation works for everyone)

    We are an Eco/Holistic Educational Organic Farm and Retreat Center in
    Upstate NY.  Our 90 acre property is at a 2000 ft elevation with an 8
    acre lake, several ponds & creeks and mostly wooded.  We specialize
    in spirituality, sustainability, healing, heritage produce, livestock,
    flower essence, aromatherapy and herbal products.

    We have extensive gardens full of medicinal & culinary herbs, small
    fruits and produce. The breeds of chickens, ducks, pigs and rabbits,
    that we've chosen for the farm, are all on the American Livestock
    Conservancy's list of critical, watching or recovering species.  We
    also have dairy goats and make cheese, yogurt and kefir.

    We are looking for winter/year round WWOOFers and/or a farm manager for
    longer term.  Non smokers, no alcohol or drug use.  This person or
    persons need to be able to focus, multitask and have awareness of
    their actions and the potential results of those actions.    Balanced
    and self directed learners, creative problem solvers and people able
    to think outside of the box, those with the passion to experiment.
    Experience is helpful but even more important is a willingness to
    learn and be open.

    Our ideal situation would be a long term synergistic partnership with
    a couple or a group of individuals looking to create a wholistic, sustainable
    community.  We have the land and a vision and need the intelligent
    input and energy from those that want to learn and share their gifts.
    Plant knowledge, building/carpentry skills, alternative energy knowledge,
    previous farm experience and management skills definitely a plus

    Opportunities would be available to teach, learn and share.  We are working

    on putting a 24'x48' hoop house over some of our existing raised beds so

    we can raise food over the winter.  We also have a coliseum aeroponic

    system that we would like to get set up and experiment with.


We have a room available in our main building with use of facilities
(kitchen & bath).

Please call Rachel at (51 797-3373.

Lady Liberty bans intoxicants...I can see how this might possibly attract outside the box thinkers, and those with a zealous appreciation for irony.

It is hard to find people willing to take on the creation of a community, especially when there is not already a personal relationship with the landlords. I don't want to start a journey like this where my boss, mentor, landlord, friend, etc. holds on to a policy that reflects a lack of openness, trust, and experience that would be a thorn in the base of the community. I'm a valuable wwoofer and I know that in Upstate NY there is no need to compromise on zone 00.

Do you guys take WWOOFers in the winter? I have a commitment until Febuary 2013, but am looking to WWOOF after that.

In reference to the first comment there... I honestly don't see a problem with banning intoxicants... but I don't see where you read that on the website.
