Vegetable Field Crew Member
It takes a lot of elbow grease to grow great vegetables! We work long hours, outdoors, in all weather – heat, humidity, cold, rain, and sometimes snow. All applicants must be willing and able to complete a season of farm work (i.e. bending, kneeling, squatting, and carrying 50lb regularly, sometimes in adverse conditions), communicate clearly and with respect for others, and be motivated to work efficiently, as a team *or alone*, in a fast-paced environment.
Previous experience with manual labor, landscaping, construction, or commercial kitchens is valuable, but not required. A positive attitude, willingness to work towards the goal, and strong desire to explore farming as a career is a must.
Starts: April 2024 Ends: October 2024
Working hours fluctuate with weather and seasonal demands, but our average week is 7am-5pm, 5 days/wk, with a 1-hour lunch midday. Hourly compensation is based on experience. $15-$17/hr, plus as many ugly veggies as you can eat and 20% discount on our meat and eggs.
Assistant Field Manager
This position is in support of the Farm Manager's plans and aspirations for 2024. Our overall goal is to work efficiently in order to provide quality produce for our 300+ member CSA and offsite markets. We are looking for someone who is motivated, organized, communicates clearly and consistently, and thinks critically to problem solve and make improvements to our systems. A good sense of humor and flexible nature are also essential.
Responsibilities include working closely with the farm manager to organize and lead the farm team through seeding, harvest, post-harvest, and farm market operations. This position involves some tractor work, and while we are willing to train on specialized equipment, all candidates should have experience with operating large machinery. All applicants must have 3+ years experience growing vegetables and be able to complete a season of farm work (i.e. bending, kneeling, squatting, carrying 50lb etc). Working hours fluctuate with weather and seasonal demands, but our average week is 7am-5pm, 5 days/wk, with a 1-hour lunch midday. Managers are expected to work early or late when weather demands it.
