Role: Garden manager
Type: farming / self-employment

Farm: Earth Haven farm
Thomasburg, near Belleville and Tweed, Eastern Ontario
Housing: On-farm accommodation available
Also hiring: Volunteers & Interns

Earth Haven Farm is located just outside of Tweed, Ontario in Hastings County in a secluded, remote location offering the ideal setting for a sustainable, whole farm operation. With extensive woodlots, conservation land and pastures there is little to no contamination from any surrounding commercial agricultural operation. Earth Haven Farm has maintained its Demeter Certification since 2008 and is one of very few farms in Canada with this designation.

As a Demeter certified farm, our main objective is to maintain healthy, productive soil which in turn provides us with the means to grow healthy, nutritious vegetables, fruits, herbs and food for our livestock, ourselves and our customers.

The principles and practices that we use here at Earth Haven are similar to those of farmers before large-scale commercial and chemical farming was introduced. With Demeter certification there are absolutely zero chemicals, herbicides or pesticides used on our farm.

We are looking for:

  • Garden/crop planning, record keeping
  • Manual gardening, no till
  • Management of volunteers
  • Additional sales or market positions, opportunities

We want to offer an opportunity to settle here with a lasting career in a place where community is flourishing.

Please feel free to call 613-478-3876 or message me.
