ON-SITE INTERVIEWS WILL OCCUR IN FEBRUARY. About the farm: Tooth of the Lion Farm and Apothecary is a 6-acre herb farm located in Schuylkill County. We are a certified naturally grown farm and woman-run business specializing in growing medicinal herbs from seed to the final processing of bulk herbs and value added production of our tea and tincture blends. We attend farmer’s markets in Philly/Lehigh Valley/Pottsville, run a collaborative monthly herbal apothecary box subscription, and work with small local grocers and shops to sell our herbs. Going into our fourth season, we are hiring full time positions in our farm and apothecary. We will be a tiny crew of 2-3 people, working together and independently to grow, process and market our herbs and blends. While we each have specific responsibilities that keep the farm business running (see positions below), we are also all working together to create a supportive environment that centers care and respect in our work with each other and in the world. In all aspects of farm, apothecary and marketing work, I look for someone who: Is enthusiastic about herbal medicine and is serious about pursuing work in agriculture or herbalism Cares about herbal medicine and agriculture as tools to build a more just society and support our communities Is eager to learn and improve, and gets sincere pleasure from a job well done Enjoys tedious, monotonous and fast paced daily work Who can communicate in a mature, empathetic and understanding way with coworkers Is generally excited to undergo the bizarre business and lifestyle of herb farming here in Orwigsburg The farm is located in Orwigsburg, Pa, about 1.5 hours from Philly, 45 minutes from the Lehigh Valley and Reading, 15 minutes from Pottsville and Hamburg. Unfortunately there is no public transit and having your own transportation is strongly recommended. Shared, on-site housing may be available. READ ON FOR SPECIFIC POSITIONS.
