Luxy Farm is a small scale, certified organic vegetable producer located about 45 minutes east of Ottawa. Situated on about 90 acres of a former dairy farm we grow a wide variety of vegetables for a small CSA (community shared agriculture) program and two farmers' markets in Ottawa. This will be our eighth season in production and we are looking for a mature and reliable worker to help us out this year.
Candidates are not required to have any experience but must have an excellent work ethic, be willing to work hard under all weather conditions, good interpersonal skills, and an easy going attitude. Duties will include, but are not limited to: planting, weeding, harvesting, preparing vegetables for the CSA and Markets.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of organic vegetable farming. Come and learn by working directly with the farmer about everything from soil and plant biology, fertility, pest and weed management to organic certification, vegetable storage and handling, and running a CSA program.
$12/hour, approx. 35-40 hours/week. June-November, on-farm accomodations available, and all the fresh veggies you can handle!
Come join our team and be a part of the growing local and organic movement and feel the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to feed people nutritious and healthy food.
