Reed’s Organic Farm is a nonprofit regenerative farm and animal sanctuary located in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. Our location is uniquely suited for our mission in our community, which is to become essentially a community hub for organic healthy food and an educational resource. Our vision involves working with underserved community members through programming and workforce development as well as helping to build a healthier food system with focus on nearby Atlantic City. We are eager to begin the next phase of operations with a new commercial kitchen and market being built in our pole barn.
We are looking for someone to join our seasonal farm crew! This person will be a positive addition to a fast paced environment where our days become very dynamic.

We also grow cut flowers here along with extensive herbal gardens and have a tree donation program as well. We have a farmer’s market onsite where we sell our organically grown produce and grab and go food selections 5 days a week during peak summer season months and participate in a seasonal farmer’s market.
