Hiring: Salad Packing – Old Friends Farm
2021 position – Salad Packing (part-time)
Pay is commensurable with applicant’s experience and skill set. Our minimum starting rate is $15/hr. Workers must work the complete time commitment. Full time positions have the option of taking five days off during the season, unpaid. We do not offer housing for any position. There are many farm perks, including delicious salads, veggies and flowers, as well as a fun and productive work experience!
Our farm thrives on a sustainable work model. If you love farming, working hard, being on a high quality/high production farm, being part of a dynamic and fun team of people, and also having time to enjoy your non-farm life, our farm may be a good fit for you. We want to cultivate ‘farmers for life’, and have no interest in having a farm that only can exist by having its workers give up their lives for its success. That isn’t sustainable farming to us! All of our full time workers work 36-45 hour weeks and can rely on work day hours starting and ending on-time.
Interested applicants for full time positions should be enthusiastic about local organic agriculture, have a minimum of two complete growing seasons of farming experience, be energetic, be able to work outdoors in any weather condition, be self-motivated, work well with a crew and independently, and have excellent quality control while working quickly and efficiently. Must be trustworthy, reliable and responsible.

Indoor work, packing salads in our certified kitchen. Must be fast and dexterous with attention to detail and capacity for repetitive work.
