Small Scale Bio-intensive Organic Farm

Little Wing Farm is a small bio-intensive and diversified organic farm, producing vegetables and flowers year round for sale at our roadside self-serve honor system farm stand. In addition we raise a flock of quail for egg production to serve a high end restaurant in San Francisco as well as our stand. The farm is located at the base of Black Mountain on a 1,200 acre ranch in fabulously beautiful Pt Reyes Station. This is our 5th year in production, we have 3 acres in cultivation and are making big moves to expand in this coming season including a new strawberry and flower U-pick. Our flowers and vegetables are in high demand and we are looking to add a person to our crew for this year that can help us meet the popularity of our products. This is an exciting time to join the farm with lots of opportunity to deepen your farming skills and the potential for long term employment and advancement.
