The Farm Business Planning Project Manager is a member of MFT’s Farm Network team. The position provides direct technical assistance and training to farmers participating in MFT’s Farm Business Planning program. Technical Assistance (TA) provided will be in service of helping farmers move towards their self-determined business goals and long-term sustainability. This includes building trusting, honest relationships with farmers, identifying and clarifying goals and challenges within a business, and creating action plans to address those goals and challenges. This position will primarily provide individualized, one-on-one TA to farmers at all stages of business development. This role is ideal for an individual who can work with a high level of autonomy within a collaborative team.

This is a full-time position that can be based out of Maine Farmland Trust’s Portland office, Belfast office, or be remote, with travel to project sites as necessary.

We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds who bring enthusiasm and excellence to their work. Studies have shown that women and people of color may be less likely to apply for jobs unless they meet every one of the qualifications listed. We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and would encourage you to apply even if you don’t meet every one of our qualifications listed. Curiosity and a willingness to learn are key to success on our team.
