Description

~ Smith Meadows is a diversified, sustainable grass-based livestock farm in the Shenandoah Valley, serving our local community and the Washington DC area. ~

For more than two decades, we’ve practiced rotational and mob-grazing of our cattle (200 head) and sheep (300 head), and rotational grazing of our pigs (100) and hens (1200). We are a year-round, ecologically and humanely-focused farm, but also profitable.

Position Overview

Join our sustainable livestock farm and commercial kitchen business--we are growing!

We are looking for a person for the role of Meat Packer and Inventory Specialist on our Organic Farm, someone who has worked in a warehouse or grocery store with experience in a walk-in freezer.

Qualifications

  • Lifting up to fifty pounds required.
  • Must be prepared to work inside a walk-in freezer.

Compensation

  • $32,000-$33,000/YEAR plus $25/week in farm products, employee discount on products above the $25/weekly allotment.
