We are a small farm, full of exciting opportunities for the right individual. We have been growing pesticide- and herbicide-free gourmet garlic for the last 9 years and have developed a good market for our product.

This year, 2019, will be a big year for us as we are going to be harvesting our first blueberry crop and expanding our haskap plantation. We are very excited to work/collaborate with an individual this year who is ready to put their energy into their work here on the farm.

Responsibilities Include:

Tending to crops both independently as well as alongside the farm manager and preparing orders.  We use ecological agricultural standards but are not a certified organic farm.  At this time, we are working mostly on our Blueberry and Haskap plants.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.


We are looking for someone to work 30 hours a week, Monday-Thursday.

Special Notes:

  • Experience is a plus and individuals with intentions to work in the field of vegetable/fruit production as a future career will be favoured.
  • Web design skills and business skills also would be greatly beneficial.
