We are seeking several skilled farmers with work starting mid/late spring of 2012. Specific work will be determined by worker’s skills and interests and the farm’s need. Activities could include virtually any of the many aspect of our diverse farm. Applicants need to have at least several years of production scale vegetable production experience. Additional experience/skills that are desirable include tractor driving (at least 500 hours experience), basic construction, personnel management, business analysis, crew leadership, livestock, and mechanics. Applicants need to be open to a multi-year relationship and possibly a very long-term committed relationship with the farm.
Starting wage is negotiable. Regular seniority and annual cost of living wages are given along with performance bonuses. Workers become eligible for our medical/educational benefit plan after 2000 hours of work. That benefit grows in value with seniority. We generally work 40 hour weeks during the growing season, though occasionally longer hours are required.
