Kitchen Manager Green Top Farms

  • Date Posted November 03, 2016
  • Location Astoria, NY
  • Category Agriculture / Production
  • Job type Part-Time
Company description Green Top Farms is an urban farm based in NYC dedicated to healing our broken food system. Our mission is to "Make healthy easy by providing nutritious meals, on demand, straight from the farm." What began as an experiment in urban farming has evolved into a seed-to-salad healthy lunch delivery service. We grow the microgreens included in each salad and the rest of the ingredients are as local and sustainable as possible - we've partnered with other local farms to create what we believe are the freshest, most delicious salads in New York City, with greens cut the same day they're delivered.

We're dedicated to healing our broken food system and believe vertical farming (indoor, stacked growing systems) will be a key factor in achieving that end. Your support and feedback will be highly important and greatly appreciated as we build to a level where we can scale. Healthy, delicious, food was once the default option. With your support, it can be again.
