Vital Farms is looking for a committed Farm Support Coordinator who’s passionate about helping our farmers be as effective, efficient, and profitable as they can be. We’re looking for that special someone who is dedicated to the well-being of the animals in our care, and who is fiercely committed to improving the lives of everyone they work with.

If that sounds like something you care about, too, let’s talk about how you can make a difference as a Farm Support Coordinator!

Working collaboratively as the liaison between Vital Farms and our expanding network of Farmers, you’ll be using performance data to guide Farmers on best practices, ensuring they meet our rigorous guidelines in animal welfare, including but not limited to proper nutrition, sanitation, pasture rotation, temperature regulations, and more. Ultimately, the role of the Farm Support Coordinator is to be there for our farmers, supporting them as different questions and situations arise. You’re also there to hold them accountable, helping them understand what adjustments need to be made so they can be more productive, more profitable, and always audit-ready.

Organized, detail-oriented, and extremely personable with excellent communication skills, you know how to bring out the best in the people around you, turning every situation into a win-win for everyone. That’s because you’re proactive about getting to know the details and backgrounds of the Farmers you work with, understanding where they’re coming from and what they’re struggling with, so you can help them find different ways to achieve better outcomes.
