Come work with us!
We are entering our seventh season, eager for a productive and fun year ahead!
We are looking for people who come to work on time, prepared for the day. Farm experience is good, but not required for this position. As farm work is production work, it appeals to people who enjoy being tired at the end of the day, like to use their body, and find satisfaction in a job well done. We have had great employees who are interested in learning about growing vegetables, food, and sustainability, and some who simply want to work outside with their hands. Either way we enjoy sharing the experience and excitement about growing crops with the people who work with us.
