We pride ourselves on being a fantastic place to be employed, and believe there’s no greater endorsement than the returning of staff year after year. This position is available now as one of our farmers takes time off from the profession to focus on other priorities. Your crewmates will be: a Farm Manager, a co-field manager, field hand, and rotating cast of new & returning workshare members, volunteers, and WWOOFers.

Due to the investment of training resources, priority will be given to candidates that express interest in returning for the 2024 season and beyond. As well, preference will be given to candidates who are interested in a farming career.
As we enter into our 8th season, we are focusing on improving growing techniques and increasing yields, as well as expanding our arable production.
