We are a small farm in Carmel Valley, CA, that grows a diverse variety of crops and food products that is looking for a full-time, hardworking, dependable, detail-oriented, long-term delivery driver to join our team. We work all year round, offer competitive pay, and generous 401K. This position would work typically Tuesday through Sat, 7:00am – 3:30pm (approximately), although there will be some flexibility throughout the season. The Delivery Route Driver will report to and work closely with the Assistant Farm Manager for the collaborative success of the farm to achieve its goals. The farm’s goals are primarily two-fold:
To produce and distribute a large diversity of high-quality, organically grown, clean, nutrient-dense foods and farm products to meet the ongoing demands of the farm’s clientele.
To create and maintain a beautiful ranch and farm property.
The Delivery Route Driver will be relied upon to physically move our products from our farm to the residences of our customers based primarily in the Bay Area.
