Job Description: 

Come join a beautiful developing four acre farm in Almaden Valley, San Jose! We are looking to hire a plant knowledgeable, fruit & vegetable growing enthusiast to tend our market gardens as well as help upkeep the grounds in general.
• Primary responsibilities include planting, harvesting, weeding, mulching, pruning, managing the composting program, soil prep and amending, trapping gophers and other natural pest management solutions and general cleaning or maintenance of the grounds.
• The ideal candidate has an eye for detail and aesthetics and should be a self-starter, i.e. notice the weeds and see what needs to be done.
• Must be drought conscious and able to check, fix and install irrigation lines (PVC) and drip systems or be eagerly willing and able to learn on the job.
Most animals on the farm are raised with loving care to end up as food. Other farm chores could include feeding animals (ability to move a bale of hay is a plus), milking, filling water, mucking stalls, cleaning pens, moving fences for rotational grazing, and help with slaughtering and butchering.
