WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Tumble Farm is a 2 year old farmstay and retreat in North Central Florida.

 

We are seeking couple, family, and/or team interested in taking over management of Tumble Farm as we establish our second and third locations in Colorado and South Dakota.

Tumble Farm is a diverse operation. Because of this, we are looking for a couple, family, and/or team with a diverse skill set capable of managing the following:

  1. Farming/groundskeeping- Tumble Farm is 10 acres, so we need at least one person who is highly capable when it comes to landscaping, fencing, and livestock (we do not earn money from growing produce, but we like to keep many gardens and trees).

  2. Housekeeping- Tumble Farm currently has 3 guest homes and may have more. We need a team passionate about maintaining clean and comfortable spaces.

  3. Equestrian- We have 2 horses available for guests. We need people who are calm and confident in their horse riding abilities.

  4. Hospitality- In addition to our guest homes, we provide educational and retreat opportunities, so our managers need to be passionate about people and creating unique experiences for guests. Experiences as a teacher or camp counselor are highly appreciated.

  5. Fitness/adventure- We facilitate a variety of experiences including archery, bike rentals, kayak rentals, and an obstacle course. We need an team that is interested in these types of activities.

  6. Beer Culture- A cornerstone of Tumble Farm includes partnerships with local breweries and individual brewers. We would greatly appreciate someone who has brewing experience.

  7. Business management/accounting/budgeting- Someone on your team will need good money management skills, team management skills, and an entrepreneurial spirit. Your team will be given authority over discretionary funds designated to grow Tumble Farm as you see fit.

  8. Off-farm partner- It would be ideal if one person from your team is willing and interested in finding employment in the local community. Not only would this enhance your financial situation, but more importantly, it would help connect your family to the community.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, please write us an email with at least one resume. But, more importantly, please write us a short letter about your team and why you believe that you and your team will be able to thrive in such a diverse business environment. Please provide us with at least 4 references who can validate your work experiences or your capacity in these interest areas.

After this, you will be invited to visit the farm for a week. If you can’t stay an entire week, we understand, but ideally we get to spend at least 7 days together showing you around and discussing the business. At the end of that time, if we both still have interest in moving forward you will be invited to move onto the farm for a 4 month trial period. At the end of that trial period, we will have a check-in, and if mutual interest remains, we will discuss a multi-year management contract.
