Genesee Lake School (which is 100% employee owned!) is a nationally recognized and respected provider of therapeutic educational, residential, and vocational services to children and adolescents with developmental disabilities. Our beautiful campus in the countryside outside of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, is an ideal setting for our students to learn, grow, and achieve their maximum potential.
We are excited to announce that we are now seeking a Field Manager to join our team at Homegrown Farms! The mission of Homegrown Farms is to enrich the lives of Genesee Lake School students through year round educational, vocational, and therapeutic opportunities focusing on a connection with the natural world, food production, and the dignity of meaningful work. Homegrown Farms contains 52 acres of rich organic farmland planted with 2 acres of mixed vegetables such as potatoes, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, and beans, and 50 acres of row crops such as dry beans, sunflowers, buckwheat, and corn. We are looking for a grower with skill, motivation, versatility, and heart. The Field Manager will be in charge of growing produce for our school cafeteria and area group homes. On average, Homegrown Farms provides the GLS kitchen with nearly 9000 pounds of fresh vegetables from May through December! Primary job functions will focus on crop production, planning, and management. Must be able to work independently. During the off season, responsibility will focus more on general farm duties (animal care, etc).
