Farm Sales Specialist

Tookey Farms

10 acre vegetable farm

Tookey Farms has been owned and operated by myself, Sammy Tookey, since its beginning in March 2021. I have cultivated 1-2 acres of certified organic vegetables the first three seasons, but have secured an additional lease for 8 acres for 2024. The farm will start a second Saturday morning market and begin selling produce on the new site through a farm stand and a U-pick.

The sales specialist role will focus on all aspects of the farm between harvest and sales. This means working directly with myself to manage wholesale customer relations, vegetable harvest-wash-pack, direct sales at farmer’s market, and ensuring we have enough people to accomplish these tasks. The work will start in April and slowdown in the winter, but this role has the potential to grow alongside the farm over the next few years.
