Harvie (http://harvie.farm) connects local consumers directly with trusted local farms who deliver shares of farm fresh products customized to their personal preferences.
Harvie is a new platform in its second growing season from a Small Farm Central, a Pittsburgh-based company which meets the technology needs of over 1000 farms across the US and Canada since 2006. Background on the challenges our farmers face and that Harvie addresses can be found at CSA: We Have a Path Forward.
As with any small company, this position will be multidisciplinary, but to begin with you will learn the Harvie platform through technical support. In the summer, you will work directly with the CEO to build out a sales and outreach plan to bring more farms onto the platform in the 2019 season. In the fall, you will help execute this sales plan and then help with implementation of the platform on the farms that we bring on to Harvie.
This is an exciting opportunity for independent, self-starting individual who is ready to grow with Small Farm Central and Harvie.
