Wanted: CERES Aquaponics Farmer

Posted in Models, Seeking by Kate Archdeacon on July 17th, 2012


Do you have what it takes to run a small hi-tec urban farm as a professional farmer growing high value crops and selling them direct to niche markets and through a veggie box system? We’re looking for a super motivated and entrepreneurial urban farmer to run our Aquaponic Food Hub system as part of our Food Hubs urban farming research project. This is a contract position – we are looking for a farmer who will run our established system (produces 400-700 vegetable units/week), keeping the profit in exchange for pushing the system’s productive potential and helping us document what yields are possible. The position is supported with training and mentorship.
