Do you have a program that needs the input of superb expertise and experience in all things organic foods? Or maybe you have a property/grounds/lands/estate that needs ecologically beneficial management, while preserving or enhancing its aesthetics and functions? Perhaps you are looking for someone who can engage with peoples of all walks of life with enthusiasm and inspiration? Maybe you want someone who can perform a little of everything above and can simultaneously function mechanically and craftful.
I offer all of the above and much more, fueled by a unique lifetime of work experiences, 10 years of which were spent immersed in farming and landscaping positions, utilizing leading and cutting edge of sustainability, organic and regenerative practices.

-Year round row crop and Hightunnel production, cultivationm, harvesting and packing of annual crops, as well as the curing and cellaring of fall storage crops.

To Boot, I hail from a rich interculural childhood in Europe, endowing me fluently bilingual in German and English, and a great respect and understanding for the diversity of cultures and world views. I capped my education with a dual Major in the Bachelor of Arts of Philosophy and Ceramic arts, presented by Juniata College (Huntingdon, PA) 2011.
What I am seeking is a full time employment that offers an empowering salary (the salary listed is negotiable, of course) and the possibility for a lifetime career. I am open to relocating if there are initial housing options.
If all of this reads to good to be true, contact me! I would be more than glad to answer any questions and I look forward to your inquiry.
kindly and respectfully,
Roy R. Holm
