Taking on full management responsibilities. All tractor operation, seed ordering, parts ordering, troubleshooting, production goals, wwoof recruiting/management and organic certification inspection. We grew Calendula, Comfrey, Mint, Lemonbalm as well as a mix of other herbs for Moon Valley Organics value added products. This included processing the herbs through a drying process. Moon Valley Organics also houses a small apiary of 38 beehives, and a small orchard. Both of which the farmers were also responsible for managing.
