Now Hiring: Seasonal Farmworker

We are looking to add one part-time seasonal employee for the 2021 growing season (from April-October). This position is expected to work 20-hours per week. Reliable transportation, a valid driver’s license and up-to-date insurance is a must as this position does include driving and delivery-related responsibilities.

Duties include but are not limited to: weeding, planting, prepping beds, harvesting, washing & packaging, composting, mulching, cleaning, driving and delivery of CSA shares or restaurant orders, and so on. Rainy days may limit the amount of fieldwork that can be done, and activities will shift to clearing fence lines, cleaning animal shelters, making compost, washing tools & equipment, and chipping wood. Our farm is a functioning business, and therefore we expect employees to be able to work quickly and efficiently while maintaining a high level of customer service when interacting with anyone on the farm’s behalf.

Must be able to lift 50 lbs comfortably. Must be physically able to stand, bend, kneel and crouch for extended periods of time. Employees are expected to work outdoors in all weather conditions; this includes high heat and humidity, pouring rain, and high wind (unless conditions are unsafe, we are working outdoors.) We do not cancel shifts because of the elements and we expect you to prepare and dress accordingly.

Ideal candidates must value quality in their work, be detail oriented, have a positive attitude, able to closely follow written and verbal instructions. In this position, it’s important to be able to work well with others, work well alone, possess critical thinking skills, and to BE ON TIME. We have a zero tolerance policy for tardiness.

While experience is a plus, no prior farming experience necessary. We are willing to train the right people.

All candidates should be expected to attend a working interview on the farm prior to being offered a position. Working interviews are expected to last between 4-8 hours and candidates will be compensated at a rate of $12/hour.

Starting the Right Way: The Importance of Organic Seeds

Organic Pea Seeds

When I think back to all the questions we’ve been asked by our customers at the farmers market this past year, the absence of one stands out, and I must admit it surprises me. We are often asked about the location of our farm, the types of fruit and vegetables that we grow, about the presence of pesticides on our produce, and why we chose farming as an occupation.

Farmer to Farmer: The Importance of Continuing Education


One of the most common questions we get at the farmers market is “How did you get started in farming?” It’s a great question, but the answer is difficult to condense down into a few sentences.

These days, I’m happy to tell you that the only thing keeping me awake at night is bugs.
