Full-time work is available late April/early May through the end of October with part-time hours available on either end. Crew is responsible for all aspects of the farm from greenhouse work, to planting, hoeing, weeding, harvesting, and packing CSA baskets!  Our farm has a crew of 6 full-timers including Managers Sarah and Kristen Wilson.  There are 3 part-time workers on harvest days, as well as Work Shares- these are members who work in exchange for their shares.  We are a close-knit group who like to work hard, learn, laugh, and have great conversations in the fields.

Our second opportunity is very unique.  The current Farm Managers will be moving on after the 2017 season comes to close. We are hoping to hire one person this season to train with the current managers in order to take over management of the farm for 2018.  This will be a co-manager position with a returning crew member. Managers will be responsible for all aspects of the
farm including marketing, advertising, record keeping, membership, finances, crop planning, seed ordering, planting, maintenance, harvest, CSA management, and crew hiring.  2 or more years of farming experience are desired.
