Sage Waters Cooperative Inc. Company Information
- United States
Sage Waters is an employee-owned cooperative farm located in the Magic Valley of beautiful southern Idaho. Our mission is to grow high-quality nutrient-dense food using regenerative ecological practices that promote health in our local community, soils, and waterways while supporting a sustainable livelihood for the local producers and consumers in our region. This year will be our first season in full crop production on land that has been conventionally farmed for many decades. Over the past year we have been investing heavily in soil building, farm infrastructure, new farming tools, and new irrigation systems. During the 2021 season we will continue building infrastructure while beginning to hone and develop our farming systems to suit our unique context (i.e. climate, culture, markets, mission/vision, etc.). The market farm includes two commercial greenhouses (34� x 96�) complete with environmental control systems and 120 outdoor permanent raised beds (30� x 50�) totalling ~1 acre of hand-scale biointensive crop production. We will be growing salad mix year-round in the commercial greenhouses for wholesale distribution and a diverse mix of seasonal vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, and greens in the outdoor beds to be sold direct-to-consumer at local farmer�s markets. The crew at Sage Waters Farm enjoys a fast-paced and team-oriented work environment. As managers, we emphasize clear and open communication, reasonable expectations in the face of ever-changing work conditions, fair wages that support a healthy livelihood, fostering a work environment of inclusion, and having fun is really great too!
