Company description Fili-West Farms is a small, family owned farm specializing in Pasture-Raised Poultry. We're mostly known for our Eggs, as we produce 2,000 dz/week, selling them to 40+ restaurants and retail locations in and around Charleston, SC. Though on a smaller scale, we also produce Pasture-Raised Turkey and Chicken. All of the above are produced using the most innovative and efficient farm equipment we can source from all around the World. This modern technology helps us do more with less people/effort, all while improving both our soil and the lives of the animals who live on it. We plan to diversify the farm further by adding Sheep into our pasture rotation. This addition will help us to improve our soil, small water cycle, carbon sequestration, farm sales, and MUCH more! But first, we need to expand our small team of motivated farm hands to help us take these next steps. Might YOU be one such individual? Job description
