Hi! My name is Karen and I am a board member of the CSA at La Vista in Godfrey, IL. We are in the unfortunate position of having no head farmer for the 2010 growing season. At the recommendation of another CSA, I am posting in attempt to spread the word about our CSA.
I hope this is an appropriate place to post this, if it is not, I apologize!

CSA Head Farmer
Head Farmer opportunity to begin 8th season at a vibrant CSA located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River in Godfrey, Illinois on the fringe of the St. Louis metro area. Our CSA has grown over the last seven years to a current membership of 135 full shares. Our mission includes contributing a percentage of our produce to low-income families and local pantries.

We have 4+ irrigated acres with barn, greenhouse, office and well-maintained equipment. The farm produces around 65 different vegetables, flowers, herbs and strawberries using sustainable growing methods.

The Head farmer is responsible for planning, growing, marketing and educating the community with volunteer assistance from shareholders and committees. Our CSA is Board governed and has an active volunteer and supportive membership. We are seeking a skilled farmer with supervisory experience to work with paid assistants and/or farm apprentices.

The right applicant will be ready to join our community and step into this full time, year long, head farming position practicing organic farming methods. Competitive salary and full benefits package offered. Contact Danette Watt at or 618-467-8827. Visit for pictures and more information.
