ABOUT THIS JOB
Part Time or Full Time positions open on our 2 acre suburban vegetable farm for the 2021 Season
Previous farming experience is not necessary for field crew however, unless you can demonstrate a LOT of passion for farming it is expected that the applicant can show previous experience doing physically demanding work, ideally to the degree that sweat was dripping from your face for hours.
(Accommodation can be arranged for full time employees depending on availability)
We can be flexible when designing a schedule for the right applicant when they start. The right applicant would need to show that they were so valuable that it would warrant us changing our schedule to make special accommodations.
If you're only doing it for the money you better really need money because farming is HARD WORK and underpaid. This job will require you to work under all weather conditions outside doing manual labor. From extreme heat to bitter cold, rain, shine, snow wind, we're out there... Unless you have worked on a farm or in landscaping it is unlikely you will have done such physically demanding work as this job requires.
