Housing: possible on-site accommodation available
WINDERBERRY and EDIBLE ACRES FARM is located in Windermere, BC and we are looking for a strong, fit and self motivated person to join our team for the 2020 season and beyond. We are nestled in the Columbia Valley and Rocky Mountains. The area is a mecca for outdoor activities all seasons of the year.
The applicant will be working with both Winderberry (garden centre), certified organic Edible Acres Farm and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), as well as our Edible Acres Cafe, all located on the same property. We farm about 5 acres of certified organic vegetables, grow flowers in 30,000 square ft of Greenhouse space and have an active retail and cafe space where all the Greenhouse sales take place. There is an irrigation creek that runs through our property and drains into Lake Windermere, which is a 10 minute walk from our farm property.
As our business grows we are seeking a manager for the farm portion of our business. This would involve helping to plan field crops, managing crop production, field harvest and staff members. This person must have leadership skills, be a positive team player, well organized, comfortable with giving directions and teaching others about farming. Other important attributes are good communicator, comfortable with handling money and selling at Farmer’s Markets and of course, has experience in market gardening.
The job begins April and runs until October. It is seasonal work and if ‘we’ are a good team you would ideally return in the March of 2021.
We are a busy farm, a family run business with lots of passion for what we do ~ we work our butts off and have fun doing it!!!
