About LOF:

This project started 5-6 years ago with the passion to feed the community with-in Petaluma and the greater north bay. We focus on delivering our vegetables and fruit to our CSA, Michelin Starred restaurants and local retail customers. Growing year around (with some great time off around the holidays), biodiversity, medicinal perennials and CCOF certified are your ethos. We strive to grow some of the best tasting vegetables for our clients and customers.

Our Farm Hand positions are in charge of the daily tasks, harvesting, weeding, planting, general property care, animal husbandry, weeding, irrigation, and bed creation.

Duties & Responsibilities: 

Our ever expanding farm is looking for more full-time, year-round, hard-working, soil-driven, like-minded individuals. We are a CCOF certified organic farm two miles from downtown Petaluma CA. LOF is a five year-old farm with new management as of last year that is committed to converting the farm to No / low till and building soil health for longevity.

Our farming has us focused on perennials, and herbal & medicinal production from our 4 acres of mixed vegetables and over 1000 fruit trees.

General daily tasks include weeding, planting, greenhouse work, harvesting, crop assessments, more harvesting and some animal husbandry. Our sales include our own weekly CSA, direct sales to Michelin Restaurants, and an honor-system farm stand market garden. Building the soil, and encouraging biodiversity on our farm is a pillar to our work.

LOF is a year-round operation. With this comes great opportunity to experience farming beyond just a summer season and get more well-rounded knowledge of farming throughout the year. Cover cropping, crop rotation, field planning, and BioDynamic prep are all great additions to work experience that come with working the farm for a full calendar year. (The farm does take breaks with considerations to the holidays and time for rest & family). We welcome applicants with 1-2 years of experience. Email your resume to William@liveokafarmpetaluma.com

There could be an opportunity for the right candidate to live in one of our rooms within a farm house on property if housing is a need (We trade some of your hours for rent). We offer a competitive hourly wage, free yoga, and of course all the vegetables you can eat.
