Job Description: 

We are looking for an Assistant Farm Manager to help with the day-to-day running of the farm.
Sun Circle Farm is a Certified Organic farm in beautiful Palmer, Alaska. We grow multiple successions of vegetable and flower crops on about 2 1/2 acres including several high tunnels. Our produce is offered through a mid-sized CSA, two large weekend markets in Anchorage, a thriving Farm Stand, and sales to local restaurants. We strive for a positive, supportive work environment with plenty of opportunity for on-the-job learning.
Our farm season runs from late April/early May through mid-late October.
Compensation is $15/hour with more available DOE.
Housing on farm is a possibility.

Duties & Responsibilities: 

This job will consist of basic farm labor such as transplanting, weeding, harvesting and processing produce. The Assistant Manager will be tasked with helping to train and manage the Farm Crew (usually 6-7 employees). They will work closely with the Farmer but also be expected to work independently with the crew such that the farmer can focus on other big-picture projects. Ideally the Assistant Farm Manager will also help with problem-solving and figuring out the day-to-day management of crops and systems. I am looking for someone who has ideas and is excited about small scale sustainable agriculture!
Work will be M-F for 40-50 hours a week.

Education & Experience: 

Looking for someone with demonstrated experience with small scale sustainable agriculture (3 years+) as well as experience with managing a crew. Some experience with small machinery such as walking tractors and flame weeders is preferred. The ideal candidate will have a positive attitude, enjoy physical work, and be intellectually curious.
