Hiring: Temporary Factotum Position – Old Friends Farm

Temporary Factotum Position

April 4-July 8

4d/wk

This position will offer varied work including being part of the vegetable harvest, vegetable processing, and involvement in miscellaneous other arenas. Ideal candidates will have interest and enthusiasm for organic farming, good communication skills, experience working outdoors, and be a fast learner.  Perfect for a farmer that has other mid-summer plans!

General Details for all positions:

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, 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 employees 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 should be enthusiastic about local organic agriculture, have a minimum of two complete growing seasons of farming experience, be energetic, be able to work in all weather, be self-motivated, work well with others and independently, and have excellent quality control while working quickly and efficiently.  Must be trustworthy, reliable and responsible.

Apply via email with a letter of interest, resume, and 3 references.  Please specify which position(s) you’re applying for.
