Job Description: 

Feeding Crane Farm (FCF) is a new farm business located in Penn Valley (approximately 10 minutes from Grass Valley, and 15 from Nevada City). Previous to starting FCF, Antonio Garza and Daylin Wade operated Riverhill Farm for three years. We have a crew of five coming with us from our time at Riverhill, and we are looking for two persons to join our excellent crew of hardworking and fun loving folks. We are a direct marketing mixed vegetable operation. We place a high value on attention to detail, and producing the best possible produce for our customers. The positions will start at the California Minimum Wage of $13/hr. This is a seasonal position that runs from May 1 to October 31st. If the season allows additional work may be offered. You can find us at @feedingcranefarm and

Duties & Responsibilities: 

We are hiring for two positions. 1) All around farm crew. You will be involved in every aspect of the farm production. The ability to lift at least 40 pounds, and work in the outdoors in relatively hot temperatures is required. This is primarily a Monday through Friday job, with Saturday farmers market responsibilities in rotation with the rest of the crew. We start early, and finish early - aiming for 8 hour days.

2) Farmers Market Maven and farm crew. We are looking for someone who loves interacting with the public and talking produce. The ability to describe the produce and its uses while maintaining the fast paced flow of the markets is very important. This person may work up to three farmers markets a week on a Tuesday through Saturday schedule. We do markets everywhere from Penn Valley to Truckee. You will be driving a van, setting up and operating the stand, and bringing it all home with the help of another person. On non-market days you would fold in to the farm crew on whatever the tasks of the day are. Consideration will be given to persons who only want the market responsibilities and are willing to work part-time.

Education & Experience: 

The ideal candidates have at least one year of farming experience. The Market Maven must have previous farmers market or farmstand operation experience, and a clean driving record. Please provide at least two references, preferably farm related. If we offer you a position we will provide references from both current and past workers.

Application Instructions: 

Email your resume. After receipt we will respond to set up a phone or in person interview.
