We’re seeking a friendly, fun-loving Harvester and Farmers Market employee for late April through the end of October. You could also be our Pack Shed Manager on harvest days if you are particularly detail oriented. Work will include harvesting, Tuesdays and Fridays, restaurant/grocery deliveries on Fridays and Farmers markets three Saturdays per month. If you'd prefer to run our pack shed on Tuesdays and Fridays your work will include produce washing, boxing, labeling and other prepping for various retail accounts and CSA. Your schedule will run approximately 22-26 hours per week. We know lots of other farms, restaurant owners and land-owners on Whidbey in need of workers in the summer so we can likely help you fill in your schedule with other employment if you desire.

Lift 50+ pounds
Work alone with speed and efficiency
Pay a lot of attention to detail and cleanliness
Feel enthusiasm for working long, physically demanding days. It's super satisfying!
Demonstrate friendliness and excitement to interact with the public.
Experience farming is highly desired, but not necessarily required.
Perks: Work outside with a small, stellar crew of employees and work-traders.
Enjoy all the organic certified veggies you can handle!
Put your body to good use and feel super accomplished at the end of everyday.
