White Oak Farm is hiring for two farm staff positions to start work spring 2021. We are an organic farm and environmental education center located on 62 acres in the unique rural town of Williams, Oregon. We are looking for an experienced farmer to step into the new role of Assistant Farm Manager, as well as a separate position for a Farm crew member. Both positions will be available early spring of 2021 and include housing on the Farm.

We are looking for individuals (or a couple) with experience in most aspects of farm work, and also with the ability to communicate clearly and maturely; self-motivate; and work efficiently. Compensation includes a competitive hourly wage based on experience; access to farm fruits, vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese and meat; housing in a natural built rustic cabin; and use of Farm facilities such as ponds, trails and a sauna.
