Fraser Farm’s GrowSureEase, LLC is looking for a horticultural, sustainability minded individual(s) to partner with the owners in developing a transition plan for the next five years and beyond.

We currently have two farms- a Christmas tree farm of 32 acres, and a small organically farmed 5.3 acre vegetable and fruit farm located in the city of Ripon, WI, located about twenty miles from Oshkosh and/or Fond du Lac, WI. The vegetable/fruit farm – GrowSureEase, LLC has two greenhouses- one is 30’ x 144’, the other used to start plants is 26’ x 42’.

The farm has been farmed using organic based methods, but is not certified. Housing is available on the farm at this time. Wages and other benefits could be discussed during the interview process.
