New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s (New Entry) mission is to improve our local and regional food systems by training the next generation of farmers to produce food that is sustainable, nutritious, and culturally appropriate and making this food accessible to individuals regardless of age, mobility, ethnicity, or socio-economic status. In doing this work, New Entry provides critical training, career development, and economic opportunity to new farmers. We are seeking an individual who is excited to lead our farmer training team to build programs that will guide beginning farmers from “dreaming about farming” to actualizing their plans and following an agricultural career pathway to become economically viable farmers in New England. New Entry is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks.
The Farmer Training Program Manager will provide year-round technical assistance (TA), mentoring, and training to small-scale direct market beginning farmers, and serve as the manager for New Entry’s Beginning Farmer Training Programs. This person will also have programmatic duties to conduct intake and case management (mentoring and technical assistance) for new farmers, teach hands-on and classroom training courses, lead our statewide Beginning Farmer Network, support national outreach and information sharing among national beginning farmer programs, and oversee New Entry’s Incubator Training Farm campus and related programs. This is a full-time, year-round position with competitive salary and generous benefits.
