Farm Work

We hire a crew of about five employees, typically from March through October each year.  Compensation includes a small salary, produce, and education on organic agriculture.  We are particularly interested in working with prospective farmers.  Training the next generation of organic growers is an important part of our mission.

We are active in CRAFT, an association of area organic growers and their staff which meets monthly to tour other farms and to share information on organic agriculture  ( http://www.organicgrowersschool.org/content/1874 ).   Tom serves on the Board of the Organic Growers School and provides access to other farmer training resources.

We  encourage our crew to take responsibility for part of the farm operation from sowing to marketing in order to acquire first-hand experience in the decisions needed to produce a crop.
