Seeking Two Apprentices (FT/PT) for the 2019 Season
Apprentices will participate in all aspects of the farm operation, the bulk of the field tasks being transplanting, weeding, and harvesting. Apprentices will work alongside our experienced crew and benefit from their combined 40+ years of farming experience. By the end of the season, apprentices will have gained an in-depth understanding of the daily operations of a working farm and the CSA model. Farm experience is preferred but not required, and an unwavering work ethic is essential.
Must be able to lift 50 lbs.
Must be willing to work in all weathers
Must be able to take direction
Must be able to maintain a steady work pace
Must be able to maintain focus during monotonous tasks
Must be able to maintain a positive attitude
Must have a valid driver's license
We pledge to provide the all the training and tools necessary for optimal performance. Our team is supportive, kind, and fun-loving, and we prioritize creating a positive experience. We respect schedules and personal needs. We have never lost a crew member mid-season, and we don’t intend to.
We expect all crew members to work their tails off. Farming is wet, dry, cold, hot, dirty, buggy, tedious, exhausting, and unbelievably
rewarding. If that doesn’t excite you, this is not the place for you.
$12–$13 per hour, depending on experience
