About Agricola Cooperative Farm
Agricola Cooperative Farm produces organic vegetables and flowers on our 160-acre property in Papineauville, QC - halfway between Ottawa and Montreal. Now entering our 3rd growing season, Agricola is a worker’s cooperative founded by four friends and co-managers. In 2021, we will be producing vegetables and flowers for our 200-member CSA, a farmer’s market and our on-farm kiosk, as well for Farmhouse Food, a producer’s cooperative. Our production style is bio-intensive and low-till, and we’re actively interested in ongoing innovations in small-scale farming.
We are looking for 3 people to join our dynamic, motivated and caring team. As a worker’s cooperative, we place a high value on communication, respect and teamwork, and we work to create a safe, engaging and fun work environment for all employees. If you are interested in learning about operating an organic farm and/or cooperative structures, this is a great opportunity: with 4 co-owners involved in the day-to-day operations of the farm, there will be extensive opportunities for mentorship and continued learning for those who are interested.
Tasks and Responsibilities
Farm workers will be engaged in all aspects of production on a mixed-vegetable and flower farm. Tasks will vary through the week and through the season. Principal tasks include:
14$/hr, with possibility to increase based on experience.
