Philosophy of employment:

We are a family-farm, caring for 28-acres of organic vegetables, herbs, fruits, and hay.  Our season serves our CSA members, long-time customers at the farmers market and our local food coops, along with a variety of chefs in our local region. We work as a team to accomplish the needed tasks around this bustling farm.  Those who are passionate about food, working with plants and soil, and excited about working hard will be best fits on our farm.

Employees are paid fairly, based upon qualifications, as farm work is both physically and mentally challenging; and in return we expect work to be done efficiently, while maintaining high standards of quality workmanship.  Workdays are typically 8 am – 6 pm with a 1-hour unpaid lunch.  Benefits include extra produce, awesome muscles, and a great tan.
