We Are Hiring!
We have a position open that we urgently need to fill. In a nutshell, our Assistant Farm Manager position is responsible for keeping things running smoothly in the production side of our farm.
This full-time Monday-Friday position involves operating tractors to do all kinds of tasks such as mowing, grinding feed, and more. It also has a big focus on maintaining our tractors, delivery vans, and equipment with tasks such as greasing machines, changing engine oil, brake jobs, and fixing things when they break.
This person also is the primary caretaker of our cattle herd each weekday. This involves executing the herd’s daily move which includes moving the portable drinker and mineral feeder, examining the cattle to evaluate performance, and determining the size of temporary paddocks based on weather, forage height, herd size, etc.
As you might guess, it is ideal for this person to have experience with livestock and with maintaining and operating vehicles and equipment. With that said, we are willing to do some training as long as the candidate has some basic understanding and experience. A great attitude and desire to learn goes a long way also!
If you know of someone who might be a good fit for this position please have them email a resume to email@example.com. This position is critical in keeping our field operations running smoothly which allows us to continue serving you with high quality, local pasture raised proteins.

Tell a Friend!
It’s now easier than ever to Give $15 and Get $15 through our Referral Program. We don’t spend a lot of money of advertising, but rather we focus on producing products that people love and are willing to tell others about. So we depend on word of mouth to find new customers and ultimately to heal more land.
So in an effort to streamline this process we have made it easier to tell others (via email, Facebook, or Twitter) about Watson Farms. And it’s all automated on the backend, so you don’t have to rely on us to issue the store credits manually. Just head over to our Referrals Page and start sharing!
Did you know that we have a webpage that displays all the reviews we have received?
Check out this ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review:
“I have severe food allergies and have to be very selective on what I eat. Gave Watson Farms grass fed Gourmet Ground Beef and Grass fed Rib eye and Strip Steaks a try. Fabulous will be placing a larger order soon.”
We would greatly appreciate it if you would be kind enough to leave us a review. It helps first-time customers purchase with confidence.
Thanks again for being partners in this endeavor of local, pasture-raised proteins that has truly transformed our farm. We look forward to continuing this transition while serving you long into the future.
