The majority of the farm crew's work will be harvesting, washing and packing produce 3 days a week. Greenhouse work, weeding, crop care and maintenance make up the rest. First year employees should expect to work in all facets of the farm for the season, with more specialization if you return for additional seasons.
We are looking for people who are motivated by production farming and have a dedicated interest in agriculture. Ideally you have a minimum of a year of agricultural experience or working outdoors. This job requires working outside in our hot summers and cold and wet winters, heavy lifting, repetitive tasks, standing, crouching, bending on a daily basis. It is highly physical work and your success is dependent on your ability to move quickly and efficiently. You should be self-motivated, find the farm work and lifestyle rewarding, and have a desire to build mastery in farm skills. While we hire seasonally for first year crew members, we are dedicated to growth opportunities for employees and are looking for candidates who may be interested in permanent employment.
One year agricultural experience or other outdoor work
