Ideally, when someone new comes to work on Snow's Bend we would like for it to be the beginning of a 3-year track, longer would be even better! The first year would be an introduction to our farm and farming systems. In the second year, more responsibilities would be given, and in the third year full management responsibilities of some areas would be handed over. With this in mind, everyone begins as an intern or crew member, but there is plenty of room for growth and performance-based pay increases.
