ABOUT: THE CREW 


Since 2011, One Farm has expanded its land in production and volume of food produced each year – which requires more help and more hands. In addition to friends, volunteers and visitors who pop in and out, regular employees maintain the daily planting, harvesting, weeding and more from April through November each year. 

 

Danelle Myer, Owner 

Danelle grew up on a soybean, corn and cattle farm near Logan, Iowa, where her family continues to farm today. She studied public relations at the University of Northern Iowa and has worked in marketing, advertising, PR, events and promotion for two decades, primarily in Omaha, Neb. In 2010, she participated in a six-month apprenticeship program through the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at the University of California Santa Cruz. In November 2010 she returned home to start One Farm. 





Scott Hoffman, Partner

Scott grew up on a farm near Emmetsburg, Iowa, where his family of 10 produced their own chickens, milk, vegetables, beef, pork and fruit in addition to growing corn and soybeans. He left high school for the Navy, spending three years on Guam, and later received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Iowa State University and a master’s in information technology from Bellevue University. 

 

2016 Crew 
Justin Thomas completed his third summer working on the farm, and is now studying computer engineering at Iowa State University. Tanner Stevens joined the crew in 2015 and is now a junior at Logan-Magnolia High School. New in 2016, Kristi Hildreth works on the farm along with other part-time jobs after a 30-year career in social work and public health. Kim Thomas, next-door neighbor and Danelle’s high-school classmate, joined the farm in 2016. 
 


Help Wanted 
Work schedules ebb and flow through the year, so we are almost always looking ahead to new crew members. If you or someone you know is interested in working one, two or three days a week on the farm, contact us at onefarmer@one-farm.com. Field work responsibilities include anything and everything such as harvesting and washing, seed starting, planting, watering, potato digging, bagging produce, tying up tomatoes, trimming onions and garlic, hoeing, laying irrigation line and more.
