Northstar Organics is hiring a Harvest Farmhand for this season. We are a 10 acre certified organic farm in Central Saanich, growing greenhouse and field vegetables, as well as berries. We grow a wide variety of produce for sale at farmers markets and wholesale to restaurants and stores. This is a busy and growing farm, with a focus on improving our quality and expanding our production every year.
This is a full-time position (Monday to Friday ideally, but a four day work week can work as well) that will work with Colleen, the Harvest Specialist, on the farm. Work days are from 9 am to 5 pm.
This is definitely fast-paced work that would be best suited to people looking for longer-term employment, at least May to November. Colleen is enjoyable to work with and keeps the work manageable and fun.
There is a lot of organizing sales lists for wholesale and markets in this position, as well as quality control. When harvest is finished there is usually greenhouse pruning, field planting, etc to move on to.
This position is best suited to someone familiar with vegetable harvest on a market-garden scale.
Starting wage is $14/hour.
Please send resumes and a short description of your interest in this work to Shawn at:
2200 Bear Hill Rd.
Central Saanich, BC, V8M 1X7
