Check out where we need help on the farm!
Two Sparrows Farm LLC is a grass-based livestock farm and dairy producing healthy, humane and sustainable food that stewards creation by nourishing the land, the animals and our bodies.
We are looking for a hard-working, detail-oriented milker who isn’t afraid to get dirty two mornings a week.
We provide fresh, unprocessed milk to herd share members on a weekly basis so sanitation and hygiene of the animals is of utmost importance.
We offer $45-$50 per milking, plus access to amazing fresh milk.
Previous livestock (handling) experience and ability to lift & carry 50 lbs is required.
Previous milking experience is preferred.
Milker will be responsible for setting up the parlor, sanitizing the equipment, cleaning and milking 20-24 cows, cleaning the equipment and parlor after milking. Milking begins around 9:00 AM.
Each milking should take 3 hours or less. It is a very physically intensive job and requires barn boots.
We provide waterproof overalls but you’ll need to dress warmly in the winter.
Additional calf chores are available for $5-$10, depending on how many calves are on milk.
Additional farm work opportunities available including fencing, hay making, etc.
Two Sparrows Farm is located north of Eaton Rapids, 14 miles south of downtown Lansing and 17 miles south of Michigan State University.
