Job Title: Field Crew
Description: Our Field Crew is instrumental in growing all annual and perennial crops including planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting. This is a part-time seasonal position, 6 hours per day Monday through Thursday with occasional weekend work. The work schedule may extend into Friday, depending on the needs of the farm.
We are seeking motivated, resourceful, and hard-working individuals to join our team this season.
The Field Crew’s main responsibilities include:
- Fieldwork: crop seeding and transplanting, planting, watering, fertilizing, weed control
- Harvesting produce, washing and packing, order fulfillment, and distribution
- General farm maintenance, cleaning and repair
- Follow farm and food safety practices
Other duties may include:
- Caring for the health and well-being of our laying flock
- Collecting and washing eggs
- Assisting in farmers market booth operations
Time Commitment: May – October: 24-30 hrs/wk; November: 15-20 hrs/wk
Most workdays begin at 8:00 am; however, during the heart of the season the days can start as early as 6:30 am depending on the day’s tasks and the weather. Flexibility in scheduling is a must. Workdays are Monday through Thursday with the expectation of light duty on occasional weekends (3-4 hours of work per day) at least once per month. Because our vegetables and animals don’t take breaks, we also work on holidays.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have a balance of grit, patience, efficiency, an eye for detail, and the ability to handle the physical demands of the work (i.e. lifting 50 lbs+ repetitively). Applicants must have a passion for growing food sustainably and be willing to work outdoors, in all weather. The ability to self-manage and work well with others is essential. Excellent communication skills, a good attitude, and professional manner are also key.
At least one season of market vegetable production is preferred. Experience operating farm equipment is a plus.
Position is hourly, with competitive wages based on experience. Farm-fresh produce and eggs provided when available.
