We hire a crew of four to five employees, typically from mid-January through mid-December 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. Our crew is full for the 2020 season but please reach out if you’d like to be added to our on-call list.
Our crew works two days per week – Monday and Friday – and commute to the farm. We begin the day harvesting produce for market and spend the afternoons sowing, transplanting, building infrastructure, and maintaining the farm.
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.
We encourage our crew to take responsibility for many parts of the farm operation – from production to marketing – in order to acquire first-hand experience in the decisions needed to run a small, diversified organic farm.
