Position Announcement:  Director of Poultry Enterprise

Lick Skillet Farm (lickskillet.farm) is an 800-acre Century Family Farm near the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee.  We practice regenerative agriculture, and we sell direct to the public.  We do no row cropping – our niche is pastured proteins of the highest possible quality, sold locally.

We are building a professional management team to take over all farm operation as the current generation of leaders prepares to retire.  To date we have directors of our cattle, swine, and agritourism enterprises as well as directors of Marketing & Sales and Finance & Administration.  Now we are looking for the right person to become the Director of Poultry Enterprises.

This is a great career opportunity as the farm’s owners believe in investing to ensure the success of all farm team members.  We have the land and capital to build upon – now we need the person with the experience and entrepreneurial drive to launch a broad-based poultry operation, spanning layers and broilers and multiple species.

Enterprise Directors are in charge of planning their business, overseeing capital investments made by the corporation, hiring, training and overseeing crew members, and interfacing with the farm owners and other directors on the management team.

Look at our website.  Pay particular attention to the materials on our values – we are a values-based organization, and if you don’t share our values, you will probably not be happy here.  If you feel you have the experience, personality, and values to fit in with the rest of our team, contact me at alex@lickskillet.farm.
