Employment Opportunities

Farm Manager/AgTourism Director

Walnut Knoll Farm, LLC is an alpaca farm that began on December 30, 2002.  We grew to almost 100 alpacas, mostly Haucaya, during the time prior to 2008.  As we go through this changing alpaca industry, we are adapting as the world of commerce also changes.  We are now seeking to employ an individual that is an independent thinker, but also a strong team player in an adventure that will lead to our farm transitioning from a breeding/fiber exclusive operation to one that emphasizes education and tourism.  We will not abandon the fiber end of our industry, but will enhance it through promoting a better understanding of the importance of locally sourced fiber production.


If you feel you are the person we need, to move forward, please answer this employment notice.  We will be looking to the successful candidate to step up quickly to the many tasks and skills needed, but first you must learn the alpaca trade.  You will be asked to do all the needed tasks of our farm while also developing a positive cash flow.


The basis requirements are:


Farm Manager/Ag Tourism Director


 


Must have Ag Science Degree with management emphasis and two years relevant experience.


 


Duties will include, but not limited to:


o       Development of Annual Work Program


o      Maintenance of farm buildings, fences, equipment


o      Ongoing quality care of alpaca herd


o      Promotion of farm as Ag Tourism destination
