About Working with Us
Read this First!
Many Fold Farm serves to create and maintain a great team of employees and interns who make our farm a great place to work. A farm is a perfect place to gain real leadership skills, push your boundaries, and creatively grow. Whether you stay for a season or for many years, the work can be transformative, but as with anything, you get out of it what you put into it.
What we offer is not easy: the hours are long, and the work is physically and emotionally demanding. A negative attitude makes this work harder for you and those around you. Positivity in the face of adversity is an essential attribute for anyone who wants to do farm work and especially for anyone who wants to make cheese. Unlike most other jobs you have worked or that school has prepared you for, we work with living systems; they are unpredictable. We love the Chinese phrase, «天有不测风云», which means something like, “The extreme sensitivity of non-linear systems to initial conditions makes them hard to model and predict,” or more simply, “Winds and clouds are hard to fathom.”
We embrace the attitude that getting it wrong is how we get it right. We embrace mistakes for the learning they offer about these systems that are so difficult to fathom. If you are uncomfortable with daily setbacks and failures, this work is not for you, but if you have true perseverance, a dislike of complaining in yourself and others, a strong sense of personal responsibility, a willingness to be wrong and to learn when you are wrong, the ability to be supportive to others and kind to yourself, and an abiding sense of gratitude for the opportunity to have meaningful work, then we invite you to apply.
